or west with the cash from the sale, you will need a Reno drug crime defense

Did Law Enforcement Take Your Money?
The El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC) relays information on drug deliveries
moving east and drug money moving west across I-80. Nevada state troopers
will stop cars with little or no provocation if they have received a tip
- Common reasons they use for pulling over suspects include:
- Speeding, even if it is one mile above the speed limit
- A tail light out
- Expired registration
- Other minor infractions
The police officer will ask some questions and try to get your permission
to search your car. If you grant it, and a large amount of cash is found
in your vehicle, regardless of where you got it, the police have the right
to seize it. You will receive a receipt and a Drug Enforcement Administration
(DEA) case number and be sent on your way.
Law enforcement is allowed to keep these ill-gotten gains, even if they
can't arrest you on suspicion of
drug trafficking. Most people assume that once the police have it, that money is gone.
Our job as your criminal defense team is to work toward getting some or
all of that money back. If we are able to prove that the money came from
a legitimate source, we may be able to get the entire amount returned
to you. It is also possible to get a portion of it returned through negotiation.
