OHP Uses New Device To Seize Money During Traffic Stops

Here’s how it works. If a trooper suspects a person may have money tied to some type of crime, the highway patrol can scan and seize money from prepaid cards.  OHP stresses troopers do not do this during all traffic stops, only situations where they believe there is probable cause.

Seized funds go directly to the police department, you do not have to be charged with a crime, and there is no way to seek justice. It’s literally highway robbery.
