Have cash -- will travel. But won't have cash for long. Officials at Washington Dulles International Airport have seized a large amount of money.
A U.S. citizen arriving from Qatar declared eight-grand at customs. But Customs and Border Protection officials say a detection dog alerted them to nearly 25-K in an envelope in his luggage. There's no limit to how much cash travelers can carry, but they must declare 10-grand and up. Officers seized the dough but didn't arrest him. The man was told how to petition to get the money back.
