    I am watching COPS with my dad, and the undercover police are selling dope to people. When they bust the people, the police say they are going to seize the car. Can they keep the car? What are the laws about this related to drugs? and what all can they seize?

    Thanks!

    Absolutely, You use it in a felony offense, you lose it. PERIOD!!!

    You CAN”T buy it back, it’s gone… belongs to the city/state.

    It’s called Asset Forfeiture….

    wow i was actually watching the same episode as you. And yes they can they can seize anything related to the selling buying or manufacturing of those drugs.

    @fresh1, no they do not impound it, they seize it and put a hold on it and you have a certain amount of time to buy it back. Havent you evered wondered where the police get there cars they are selling when they have a police auction? they dont just magically appear!

    Yes, they keep the car and all other “instruments of criminality”.

    For big time criminals, they seize everything they own as the “fruits of criminality” (i.e. bought with illegal money)
