Have you found yourself stopped and detained in Utah and your money, phone, car and other property seized by the police? Across the country and in Utah the highway patrol and police aggressively stop motorists on what is known as a pretext stop for some minor traffic offense. They then deploy a dog or ask permission and search your car and seize property. The authorities claim that the money is proceeds of criminal activity or that it is going to be used for criminal activity.
After they seize the property they have seventy-five days to file a civil forfeiture action against you to forfeit the property.
