A former Marine was pulled over in Nevada for following a truck too closely. Police took nearly $87,000 of his cash without arresting him

The Nevada trooper first told Stephen Lara the highway patrol was educating drivers “about violations they may not realize they’re committing,” and that he’d been pulled over for following a tanker truck too closely. Eventually, the trooper admitted having an ulterior purpose: stopping the smuggling of illegal drugs, weapons, and currency as they crossed the state.
