A judge has ruled that Nebraska cops have to give back $1 million they took from an exotic dancer during a traffic stop.
The 33-year-old started saving her money, $1 dollar at a time, when she started dancing at 18. She was planning on using the money to start her own business and get out of stripping. State troopers confiscated the cash when they pulled her and her friend over for speeding.
She had packaged the money in $10,000 bundles tied with hair bands and placed in plastic bags. She had it in the trunk of a rental car they were driving to Chicago so she could invest in a nightclub.
The cops thought it was drug money and confiscated the cash and took her into custody.
K-9 found no drugs in the car and her story checked out, so a federal judge ordered the cash returned, or a check including interest cut to her.
