Yeah, normally drug dealers, and people who make money illegally get too nervous, and don't want to awnser questions, which gives suspicion of wrong
About 4 years ago or so I was travelling by truck to a new job location. In my old job I would go to isolated places, and some dangeours places, so
when i travelled by truck I had a baton with me, in my carry on luggage just in case. I happened to have received a call by my manager who told me
they needed me to go to another assignment, and that he had bought a plane ticket for me, and all i had to do was leave the truck at the airport,
someone else would pick it up, and to take the flight to the new location.
Well, I had forgotten that I had the baton because I had to hurry to catch the plane. The TSA found it of course, and they asked me questions about
it. I awnsered the questions, and told them what happened, and why I had it in the bag. It was an honest mistake, but I was not arrested, and even
had one of the TSA agents stop my checked in baggage, and go with me to put the baton in my checked in baggage. I was allowed to fly to my new
However, even if it was a mistake I had to pay a fine, and since then the TSA always checks my cheked in baggage, which it has gotten frustrating, but
I understand why they are doing this.
