    Man Walks Through Boston Logan Airport With $50K in Backpack; Government Wants to Keep It
    By Scott J. Croteau/ Boston/ MassLive/ masslive.com

    "A backpack stuffed with $49,400 in cash seized by authorities at Boston Logan International Airport last year is part of a legal battle over whether the money can actually be kept by the government.

    The government claims the money was part of illegal drug sales, but the owner of the cash and his lawyers say authorities have no proof other than suggesting a criminal act was involved.

    Carrying a large amount of cash isn’t evidence of illegal activity, the man’s lawyers argue.

    The issue over the legality of the proposed seizure of the cash began on May 1, 2018, when Robert N. Kenny headed to Logan to catch a flight to San Francisco that night, according to a civil filing in a federal court in Massachusetts.

    Details of the discovery and seizure of the cash are contained in an affidavit filed by U.S. Drug Enforcement Special Agent David X. O’Neill.

    The affidavit described the following events:

    Massachusetts State Police Trooper John Banik was advised that Kenny arrived at the Transportation Security Administration checkpoint in Terminal B with a large amount of cash in a carry-on bag.

    Kenny had a North Carolina license with him.

    A TSA agent noticed several bundles of cash - 1,950 $20 bills and 208 $50 bills for a total of $49,400 – was inside Kenny’s backpack.

    “The odor of fresh unburnt marijuana was on the currency,” O’Neill wrote. “Based on my training and experience, the packaging and the smell of the currency is consistent with proceeds from the illegal sale of narcotics.”

    Kenny was taken to an interview room. Banik and Logan Airport Task Force member Detective Lt. Thomas Coffey soon joined him.

    Kenny, they told him, wasn’t under arrest and could leave any time. The investigators wanted to talk about the cash. Kenny agreed to talk.

    Sitting with the investigators Kenny described himself as the chief executive officer for Royal Supply, a San Francisco company. Kenny handed the investigators a business card.

    A check of the company’s website shows the slogan, “We’ve got what you need, except the weed.”......"

    Apparently large amounts of cash are common at Minneapolis airport, heading overseas. It's one way the kids preschool racket was identified.

    For that price I would want it back after a drop.
