    DEA regularly mines travel records to seize cash

    usa today report, Quote: Federal drug agents regularly mine Americans’ travel information to profile people who might be ferrying money for narcotics traffickers — though they almost never use what they learn to make arrests or build criminal cases.
    Instead, that targeting has helped the Drug Enforcement Administration seize a small fortune in cash.
    It is a lucrative endeavor, and one that remains largely unknown outside the drug agency. DEA units assigned to patrol 15 of the nation’s busiest airports seized more than $209 million in cash from at least 5,200 people over the past decade after concluding the money was linked to drug trafficking, according to Justice Department records. Most of the money was passed on to local police departments that lend officers to assist the drug agency. unquote.

    Civil asset forfeiture is not unknown. How big is largely unknown?
