Cash continues to be seized by U.S. Customs & Border Protection at the Port of Detroit, as the tweet from the Director of Field Operations below shows. In this case, the seizure of the money is likely for reasons other than failure to report the cash, but probably for bulk cash smuggling or violations related to money laundering or illegal activity (drugs/gun trafficking, etc.).
Here’s a tweet from the Detroit DFO (Director of Field Operations) for CBP:
The influx of illegal firearms continues in #Detroit as two more weapons, along with drugs and currency, were seized over the weekend. Great job to all involved keeping these guns off our streets and our #community safe. pic.twitter.com/V6DmrnsS6q

This is a reminder that even if money is properly reported to CBP, they can still seize it for other reasons, with sufficient cause for seizure. In this case, someone traveling with cash, guns, and drugs is pretty obviously up to no good.
