UPDATE: New Mexico racial profiling claim

New Mexico - Two Kansas residents allege, police took $57,000 from them after a traffic stop in New Mexico.

But Tucumcari Police say the amount was less, and that the cash was handed over to federal authorities as part of an investigation into a possible drug transaction.

Tucumcari Police say officers followed department procedures, seizing cash during the May 2 traffic stop.

The two men, both from Liberal Kansas, filed a lawsuit in State District Court in Santa Fe after being stopped for speeding in Tucumcari.
