The role of Eaton and her daughter was a sideshow of the big takedown. One of the nine defendants is Ronald Sampson, whom Eaton had driven to the mall. After Sampson was arrested, agents approached the Honda Accord he'd arrived in and saw Eaton "attempting to hide a large stack of U.S. currency under her leg," the lawsuit states. The cops removed Eaton from the vehicle and found she'd been trying to hide $820, and that's when Eaton's daughter blurted out her fateful words. Ultimately, the search also turned up "a roll" of $1,550 "inside of Eaton's open purse" and "a second roll" of $2,160 "in plain view, lying in the vehicle's console under the radio."
