Family sues TSA after 79-year-old man's $82,000 life savings were SEIZED at an airport - but he wasn't charged with a crime

A Pennsylvania man who kept his entire life savings in a Tupperware container is suing the federal government after the money - $82,373 in cash - was seized at an airport after DEA agents deemed it 'suspicious'.

Terrence Rolin, 79, and his daughter Rebecca Brown are the lead plaintiffs in a federal class action lawsuit filed Wednesday by the Institute for Justice which accuses the Drug Enforcement Administration and Transportation Security Administration of 'treating American citizens like criminals' by seizing large amounts of cash from airline passengers without evidence of an underlying crime.

Brown was visiting her father in Pittsburgh in August when he asked her to put his cash in a joint checking account.
