You're driving from Columbia MO to Colorado- and your carrying nearly 180000 dollars in cash in a duffel bag.
Driving through a construction zone on I-70 in Geary county KS- a county mountie catches you going too fast.
He runs your plates- pulls you over- cautiously approaching you from left behind and asks for your license- all in current law enforcement tactics pretty much nationwide.
After your license clears no warrants outstanding- Mr. Deputy is suspicious- wants to search your vehicle.
He finds the cash in the duffel bag and a drug-sniffing dog is brought in.
No drugs or anything else illegal is found- as you may or may not be trying to convince the cop that the money is not stolen nor are you doing anything unlawful a) carrying it and/or b) with it.
The Geary County KS Sheriff's Department takes your cash- guilt by suspicion of the money being used for an unproven future drug deal.
The money is yours again- only by your costly legal actions proving your innocence.
The cash-bust actually happened (not the first time in this UCSA)- according to a story on KMBC.com.
