According to the Detroit Free Press, Sisayehiticha Dinssa, a 34-year-old Dallas man, was arrested at Detroit Metro Airport on Tuesday, carrying $78,883 in cash and a laptop computer containing mysterious files about cyanide and nuclear materials.
A U.S. citizen who was born in Ethiopia, Dinssa was arrested after getting off an airline flight from Amsterdam. It seems he had spent four months in Nigeria on unspecified business. That business needs to be investigated.
When agents asked him whether he had any cash to declare, he said he had $18,000, authorities said. But when agents checked his luggage, they found an additional $60,883. When they scrolled through his laptop, they said they found the mysterious files. Dinssa told agents he was interested in learning about cyanide and nuclear materials. I wonder what drove his interest.
This will be a case to watch.
