Constable's Office Seizes large stash of cash

Believing the vehicle could be involved in criminal activity, Moon reportedly asked permission to search the vehicle and was granted consent.
During the search, he located three wrapped bundles concealed in the interior of the vehicle. The bundles contained cash in excess of $56,000.
Since the currency is believed to have derived from criminal activity, the driver was arrested.

If you read the short article several things happen to this man and his property. First he gets arrested the the money is siezed until the police can conduct an investigation, and hey the money is going to be put in the trusty hands of the Liberty County Treasury. To be later rewarded to the Constable's office. The truck driver could also lose his truck.
So now if a person does not like banks and carries cash he is a criminal automatically?
Last time I checked it is legal to have money or is that too a controlled substance?

Well, yes, money is a "controlled substance." Used to be you could get on a plane with a suitcase full of money but not anymore. And, with cold hard cash you can bypass taxes and that is why they are trying to get everyone to use electronic debit.

But, of course if you are riding around with $50,000 cash they're just going to say it is criminal proceeds and divide it up amongst the officers. It's license to steal and if you protest they'll hit you with charges.

This sort of thing has been going on in the United States for many years. There's a few places in the country where you just don't drive with anything over a couple hundred dollars because you will be pulled over and your money will be seized. It's literally highway robbery. You don't get charged with anything but they still take your money because they "suspect it may have been used in illegal activities." There's nothing you can do about it and the cost in lawyers fees to get it back is, in most cases, more than was taken to start with. Guess the government finally caught on to the scheme over there.

I'm willing to bet that this will be thrown out of court due to lack of evidence and illegal search and seizure.
