In January of this year, a man was subjected to a search and seizure while driving in Camden County, New Jersey. His car was seized by the authorities along with money he had in a bag inside the vehicle that amounted to $43,000. The driver is now suing the Camden County Police Department to get his property back.
According to the driver’s account, he was pulled over by two Camden County Police Department officers who asked to search his car. They allegedly didn’t indicate the reason for the search. The owner, seeing nothing wrong with the request, agreed to the search. He informed the officers beforehand that he had about $43,000 in a bag inside the car that was from his clothing business. He reportedly claimed the money was revenue he collected over a few months from his enterprise that he was using to buy real estate property.
