But this guy is guilty as sin.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

I see he's building a Chevell for the undersheriff

I am with you Atctimmy. I can have as much cash as I want any where I want. It is nobody business.
I think it is foolish to carry around that much money but some people don't like banks and put it in their mattress or bury it in the back yard.
Ten years ago the perp had another run in with the law over his pot sales.The arrest of the couple was two months shy of the 10-year anniversary of Tackebury’s first run-in with deputies. He was arrested at the same home Aug. 8, 1999, and faced charges of delivering over 5 kilograms of marijuana, possessing marijuana and weapons charges. Saginaw County Circuit Court records show he was later sentenced to one year and six months of probation for possessing marijuana with intent to deliver.
Law Enforcement has the hardest job in making decisions as to proving intent, and in using PC they siezed the funds. They may have
possibily interupted , or prevented a terrorist plot, or a drug deal maybe he was going to give the money to his favorite charity, whatever I am sure there is a LOT more to the story.
I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.
The township is violating this guy's rights for sure. It doesn't matter if we like him or not, or if we approve of his livelihood. His car was taken from him under threat of violence and without due process. The Sheriff is the criminal here and should go to prison for grand theft auto.
You shouldn't have to produce proof of where you got your cash. The government has no right to keep track of large transactions. It's no one's business but yours. Why is it that some always run to the defense of the police (or government), even when they have clearly committed a crime?
The local laundromats make a surprisingly large amount of money in a day, that has almost no paper trail until they file an I9 form during tax time.
I know one owner that easily does $10k daily between 5 of his locations, I would hate to see what happened if he, or one of his employees get pulled over on the way to the bank, and they find it.
Another example would be the hot dog vender near the Home depot by my place. He told me he does roughly 8k weekly in sales, once again all cash.
Sure you can say it is from those businesses, but it is quite hard to prove exactly without the aid of a very expensive forensic accountant.
Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
The State did not have to prove it was money used in a drug transaction. The owner had to prove it wasn't. I do not know about you but I doubt I could prove any cash I carry on me is not drug related. Much of the money in circulation will test positive for drugs.
