Police: seizing property hits criminals where it hurts

-A A +A
By Christopher Brooke, Reporter

HILLSVILLE — Law enforcement officials don't just threaten to throw people acting illegally or suspiciously in prison. Prosecutors also go after the contents of their wallets or garages.

Carroll County prosecutors have implemented several such civil forfeiture proceedings in a variety of cases where suspected proceeds from drug dealing or other illegal activity — in the form of large amounts of loose cash or property — have been found.

And on some occasions, the defendants involved in the seizures haven't even been charged with a drug-related crime.
