I believe I have read stories of people in Tennessee on known drug routes, and a member of the Libertarian party at an airport, being detained for hours being questioned about their possession of large amounts of cash. The man in TN didn't get it back. The man from the LP did, eventually.

I simply don't believe, based on what I've read in the past, that the presence of drugs is a prerequisite for peoples' money to be stolen by police.
