DEA / US Customs Money Seizure Ohio

DEA / US Customs Money Seizure OhioOhio, the Buckeye state, is a Midwestern center of manufacturing and culture. Further, Ohio is the 7th most populous state and is home to five major international airports. The strong economy, combined with the large amount of international flights makes Ohio a hot spot for all sorts of money seizures.

Ohio has many famous tourist attractions, as well as universities of great renown.  Home to Bowling Green, Kent State, Miami of Ohio, Ohio State University, and University of Toledo, Ohio hosts many sporting events. When not tailgating at collegiate sports, visitors can take in a game from the Cleveland Indians, the Bengals, the Browns, the Columbus Blue Jackets, or the Cavaliers.

Customs Money seizures occur when a person is carrying in excess of $10,000.00 and either fails to report or misreports the amount of money they are carrying. The key point is that the person has to be traveling internationally AND carrying more than $10,000.00. If the person is traveling domestically or carrying less than $10,000.00 the money can seized pursuant to other regulations, but it cannot be a customs money seizure.

Furthermore, Ohio was rated as one of 2013’s “methiest” states according to the Huffington Post.

This means that in addition to there being a lot of money coming in and out for customs seizures, the Drug Enforcement Administration has a large presence in Ohio as well. A drug seizure can be reversed and the money returned if a Petitioner can prove that the funds seized were from a legitimate source, for a legitimate purpose, and have no nexus to the drug trade.
