Feds will fight to keep $167,000 taken from driver in Northern Nevada

Quote:

According to court documents, a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper first stopped Gorman for driving too slow in the fast lane, but after Gorman refused to let him search the motor home, he was allowed to go on his way.

The trooper then arranged for an Elko County sheriff's deputy with a drug-sniffing dog to stop Gorman again, and the dog alerted the deputy to something suspicious in the motor home, documents show.

The search turned up no drugs, but the $167,000 was found hidden in various places.




I don't blame dogs for being dogs, but sure seems like they can be used to unscrupulously cross any fuzzy lines needed to get someone they want to get. You know, if you just had some marijuana in there at one time or even someone smoked in the trailer maybe.
One person's freedom is another person's annoying crap.

I hear you can train a dog to find the scent of money, just like the scent of marijuana, cocaine, or explosives.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Yes, you can but it much easier to train a cop to merely say his dog alerted. faster. More efficient.
ain't no way the defense lawyer can ever cross examine the poor mutt, you know.

Wide established fact that cops can get dogs to false positive on demand.

I always carry my cash on my person when I go to the casino for this reason.

Also I don't speed anyway, so I never ran into this issue.

Just don't speed.

Civil forfeiture is definitely out of control and something should be done. But love when John Oliver analyzes things. Hilarious.

They will pull you over for going too slow.

You can't win.
