Let’s say you get pulled over by the police as you’re driving your truck toward the border. The officers question you and find bullets in your car.
You have a concealed carry permit, but no weapons in the vehicle. The police don’t care that you’re just heading over the border to talk about business with a family member. They seize your truck.
You didn’t commit any crime whatsoever, but you can’t get your truck back. What would you say if we told you this scenario is perfectly legal in the state of Texas?
This exact situation has happened before due to a relatively unknown policy called civil forfeiture. Being aware of it could save you from unfairly losing out.
