The seizures included:
- $19,762 from a couple destined to Sierra Leone on September 17;
- $68,830 from a Paris-bound man on September 16;
- $19,720 from a Paris-bound man on September 15;

- $97,223 from a second Paris-bound man on September 10; and
- $98,762 from an Ethiopia-bound man on September 9.
The currency seizures totaled $339,699:
CBP is not releasing any of the travelers’ names since they were not criminally charged. All are either U.S. citizens or U.S. lawful permanent residents. An investigation continues: “These are substantial seizures of unreported currency, and seizures that could have been avoided if the travellers would have been truthful in reporting their total currency to Customs and Border Protection officers,” said Casey Durst, Director of Field Operations for CBP’s Baltimore Field Office. “As the nation’s border security agency, CBP remains steadfast in our commitment to enforcing all U.S. laws at our nation’s borders, including federal currency reporting laws.”
