I seen a report on tv about countys that do this.You can be stopped for anything and searched.You can have as little as a few hundred dollars to thousands.They can take your money, saying you might have obtained it illegally.You are not arrested and sent on your way.(without your money ofcourse)Some people have fought this, others let it go.It is terrible they can do this but not even ask a mexican if they are here legally. Go figure!!

One of our local Deputies was sued in federal court a few years ago for seizing money while working for the 24th DTF. If I remember correctly he was ordered to pay about $40,000.

But we still spent $19,000 on an ATV for the sheriff to patrol roadways for golf cart violators! LOL I guess that's so if they take off in hot pursuit they can catch those bad guys in golf carts.
