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.
In a free country,where cash is a means of open trade,they need a protocol that protects innicents,not one that makes anyone with a pile of cash a criminal.

Think about it. Where does it stop?

If he traded 100k in antique furniture for the building would we automatically assume he stole it?

The bottom line is it doesn't matter if the money is illegal or not, no arrest, no right to take it.
You can't justify stealing from a thief.

You can travel with as much cash as you'd like, but if you do 10k cash transactions at any financial institution you will get flagged and reported. If you pass through US customs, cash over 10k must be declared.

I think you are correct. I believe anything over $10,000 in cash is considered trafficking.

There are no laws against carrying huge amounts of cash. If one was inclined to walk around with a briefcase full of $100 bills (about 1 million dollars) you have not committed a crime. Of course if law enforcement were to become privy to it they would get all sorts of curious about why.

Banks are required to report cash transactions over $10,000 but it is not a crime. Intentionally attempting to circumvent reporting by making a bunch of transactions of just under $10,000 IS a crime. It is merely a government tactic to attempt to curb money laundering by organized crime. A random transaction is not going to raise red flags whereas regular large cash transactions will guarantee that someone is going to start looking into your personal life.

I'm always nervous because I travel around perpetually with huge amounts of Monopoly money.
