So it finally happen. Pulled over. No particular reason. He smelled "weed". He found some meds in the glove box. All of it was expired prescription stuff or unscheduled stuff, like Tylenol and some supplement stuff. They then found my fentanyl strips and other reagents. Which... Yeah. **** me for trying to be safe I guess.

2 more cars showed up and they proceeded to toss the entire car... Checked gas cover. Removed the rear seat somehow. Opened the DEF tank even. Probed around the engine. They removed the tail lights stupidly... Dumped all my backpack stuff on the ground, including a $1400 iPad and a GateKeeper prototype. They were starting to remove trim pieces when one of them decided to be a hero and told them to stop or something. They kinda just threw everything back in.

And that was it. No ticket. Hour to hour and a half wasted.



So obviously I need better hiding spots to hide my questionable stuff. Give me ideas.

Um...Maybe dont keep thing you don't want the police to find somewhere they can easily have the authority to search.

That's as gentle as I can say it.

Well...I've never had the need to test my meds with fentanyl strips, so obviously we are in very different schools of thought as to what constitutes an acceptable medication to keep in car, or use.

That said, with any search if they wanna find it they will, but easiest and most secure place I can think of is in the cabin air filter.

Please be safe, keep the stuff at home, drove sober.

These days if someone hands you skittles it's probably laced with fentanyl...

Again, not my experience...Not even with as close to Atlantic City, Philly and Camden as I am. I understand the point you're making. But it doesn't apply to me.

So, did he actually smell MJ, or did he "smell MJ" in order to fraudulently establish probable cause?

Sounds like maybe he pulled you over because he wanted to do an unwarranted search without PC.

Is this an area known for excesses in civil asset forfeiture, and they were really just looking for anything they thought would be worth stealing?

I doubt he smelled anything.

The issue with hiding spots is people think there's a secret compartment that they can have installed in their car, and then proceed to utilize it on a daily basis with products that aren't sealed and cleaned.

You open your door after picking up a dope bag and put it in your glovebox, the dog knows something is in there now too. These cops just wanted to harass you, and heads up, if you carry your prescription pills loosely or in any other container than one provided by the pharmacist with the label on it, you can be charged with possession of a controlled substance, it'll have to get thrown out in court, after you've been arrested and paid your court costs...

I know it's been years but still...get a safe. The cops have to get a warrant to search it if they really want to go through it. They could impound the car as well and do an "inventory of contents" which essentially is a free search and could include the safe and it's contents, which they would then have opened through a trained locksmith.
If you don't wanna build onto the car or go the extra mile to hide it below and around just do this.

Hmmm. I made this thread kinda as a joke. Iirc I had alcohol in the seat I was taking home. They found the reagent stuff in my bag. Was kind of funny.

Just don’t bring bad stuff with you. Keep your ghost gun at home. Spend the rest on a lawyer.
