How Can Police Seize My Car For Selling Drugs?

Specifically the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force and many other police agencies have increased the seizure of assets when making arrests.  Often police will seize a car, truck or other vehicle when a person is arrested for selling illegal drugs in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  Kentucky does allow for asset forfeiture of vehicles and other property used in the distribution of illegal controlled substances.

KRS 218A.410 Property subject to forfeiture. (1) The following are subject to forfeiture: (a) Controlled substances ... [portion deleted due to space limitations.  In general, all items used in conjunction with the use or sale of controlled substances is also subject to forfeiture, including...] (h) All conveyances, including aircraft, vehicles, or vessels, which are used, or intended for use, to transport, or in any manner to facilitate the transportation, for the purpose of sale or receipt of property described in paragraph (e) or (f) of this subsection, but: 1. No conveyance used by any person as a common carrier in the transaction of business as a common carrier is subject to forfeiture under this section unless it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the owner or other person in charge of the conveyance is a consenting party or privy to a violation of this chapter; 2. No conveyance is subject to forfeiture under this section by reason of any act or omission established by the owner thereof to have been committed or omitted without his or her knowledge or consent.  **for full test, follow link to KRS.

If you have been charged with a crime involving drugs, trafficking or have property subject to seizure, you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.  Forfeiture of vehicles in Kentucky is possible and an attorney can help protect your freedom, rights and assets.  In Northern Kentucky, contact Michael W. Bouldin for a consultation by calling 859-581-6453 (581-MIKE) or email at [email protected] .  All questions are confidential.  You likely have far more rights than you know.
