Guam - A Japanese woman who was sent to Guam by her boss solely to purchase an $86,000 Hermes crocodile skin shirt intends to plead guilty to bulk cash smuggling.

Noriko Okuno was found in possession of more than $80,000 in United States currency and another 150,000 Yen.

Okuno told authorities she had been sent by her boss, Kaku Masakazu, to buy the shirt and return the same day to Japan. She admitted that she received the Yen on a previous trip to Hawaii for delivering a suitcase.

Okuno's change of plea is scheduled for Tuesday.
