State and federal law allows law enforcement officials to seize property
that they believe may have been related to the commission of a crime. Known as forfeiture, this happens frequently in drug cases. The police seize your car because it might have been used to transport drugs or have been purchased with the proceeds of drug sales. If your property was seized because you were arrested and charged with a crime, you need an experienced criminal attorney. Call Harry L. Harper in Panama City, Florida to schedule a free initial consultation. Talk with him about recovering your property.
