    Default Leave your cash at home when traveling through Wyoming.

    This is just plain wrong.

    Phil Parhamovich acted a little suspicious at the stop, but was never charged with a crime other than a traffic ticket. this is just plain wrong.

    Police use traffic stop to take $91,800 from an innocent man

    A good reason to use plastic when traveling.

    I'd be more inclined to believe that it is the politicians who write laws that not only allow, but encourage this type of activity to happen who are the corrupt ones.

    It's common knowledge that politicians are corrupt.

    its called civil asset forfeiture. The property is charged with a civil crime. The person has to go to court to prove his innocence.

    there's something really off about this story.

    why would you drive with 91k in cash? if it was to buy a studio, why wouldn't you close your real estate transaction with a check or wire? Title companies are so specific with how they want to receive money.

    many businesses will flag you for 10k cash transactions.

    Aren't people considered innocent until proven guilty?
    Carrying money is not against the law. I would hide
    it somewhere too if I was traveling with it.

    Sure there's a presumption of innocence in the US, but this guy (foolishly) consented to a search.

    Also he signed some kind of waiver allowing them to seize the cash.

    on one hand, I wonder what it was that escalated the traffic stop to trigger a search.

    on the other hand, this guy had no idea what his rights were. cops certainly won't go out of their way to tell you.

    i've grown to be suspicious of unwarranted questions, not because I dislike the police, but because i know how naive i sometimes am.
    i would have declined the search, asked if i was free to leave, or asked for a lawyer if I was being detained and shut myself up.

    It's unsual carrying that amount of cash. If it was a good reason for it, I'm sure he would have told them. Stories like his is a red flag, and will lead to further investigation.

    Why did he need to tell a lie in the first place if it was legal cash he had in his car?

    For now I'm not buying his story.

    If you read the story, you will find that the "why"s are explained.

    The IRS has rules governing cash transactions of 10k and above. The rule is to curtail money laundering resulting from drug trafficking and other criminal sources.

    Regardless of the reason that he had that much cash, if you aren't charging him with a crime involving the cash, you don't have any right to keep it. If you don't return the cash, or any other property you confiscated, you are a thief, and should be charged for stealing his property.

    I agree, his side of the story does not have that "ring of truth" to it. He does not seem like he is stupid or mentally off so why hide that much money in your car... I do not believe this story.

    I didn't say I was gonna keep the cash, but his story is the kind of story that could possibly instigate an investigation.

    Maybe this guy had pure intentions, maybe not, but the article is quick to call him innocent without having reviewed the public records on the stop or the recording of the traffic stop. what are they basing his innocence on?

    I'd be curious to see video of that whenever it's released.

    Awful that they can take a man's life savings.

    Some do not trust banks. So they hide cash.

    Now we can sleep at night knowing cops regularly take cash from hard working Americans
