Maybe it was his life savings he was carrying around because he didn't trust a bank or the stock market to lose it for him.

How does a cop determine whether the cash was illegal or not as part of a traffic stop?

Drugs, baby, drugs! When drugs are found in a car, just about everything in the car,up to and including the car can be subject to confiscation.

Wonder why the police searched the car's dash? Must be something else to the story. If the guy was speeding, you would think he would be handed a ticket and would be back on his way.

He doesn't, but if you were a cop and found 134,000 on the perp, would you want to check it out?

I know this is way out there, but is it possible he had just sold the majority of the drugs, hence the large amount of cash?

They appear to have evidence of money laundering, I wouldn't be so quick to stick up for this person.
