Thank you for the additional information. It is not uncommon when drugs are found and arrest made, the large amounts of cash found on the person are seized and not released, until after the case is resolved. The reason being, is that the police and prosecutors believe that it could have been used in a drug transaction, which allows them to keep it. However, you certainly can ask the Judge when you go before the court, to sign an order, requiring the police release the money. What you will likely need to do, is show the Judge the source of these funds. In other words, show the Judge where the money came from and that it is legitimate. If you can do this, the Judge may sign the order, releasing the money. Now, as afar as the possession
charge, you could have a defense and legal basis to fight this, if it was not found on you. After all, it was not your car, you were a passenger and how would you have known that the driver/owner had hid the car in the vehicle. If both of you are charged and the cocaine was not yours, the owner should admit to this and take the blame. Moreover, the location of where it was found would also give greater weight to who it belonged to and if you knew it was there. Since it was not on your person, it would be constructive possession, not actual possession.
