Man arrested with $78,000, nuclear info
Court records say suspect was carrying cash, data about nukes and cyanide


Updated: 2 hours, 6 minutes ago
DETROIT - A man was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after officials say they found him carrying more than $78,000 in cash and a laptop computer containing information about nuclear materials and cyanide.

Sisayehiticha Dinssa, an unemployed U.S. citizen, was arrested Tuesday after a dog caught the scent of narcotics on cash he was carrying, according to an affidavit filed in court.

When agents asked him if he had any cash to declare, he said he had $18,000, authorities said. But when agents checked his luggage, they found an additional $59,000. When they scrolled through his laptop, they said they found the mysterious files.

An even bigger idiot for declaring $18,000 in cash. If he just said no, they would've waved him through. Criminals can be so bloddy stupid sometimes. But, glad they they caught him.

Well, at least the TSA (or at least one of their dogs) finally caught a potential criminal or terrorist! Of course, most criminals are stupid like this guys was.
Often large amounts of money in such situations will have drug residue on them, and I would suspect this guy was hanging with both drug dealers and potential terrorists. I hope this guy is throughly and properly questioned and if evidednce is solid, found guilty and gets a long prison term.

These were customs agents, not the TSA. Your average TSA worker couldn't even figure out how to turn on a laptop.
