As mentioned, what is the actual meaning of の in 現金の受け取り役? I found the expression in a recent news article and have been wondering about its meaning.

The full sentence is

少年は現金受け取り役とみられ、「指示に従い、受け取りにいったのは事実です」と供述しているという。

I think this の is used in indicating an objective. 現金の受け取り means "receiving money". For example, 本の配達(delivering books)、食事の支度(preparing foods).

現金の受け取り役 means "receiver of money". It stands for relationship of possession. ("Receiver for money" or something might be more natural sounding English, I'm not sure.)
