Five years later, seized cash returned to Cedarburg man

UNDATED, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A Cedarburg man will get back $48,000 seized by state troopers in Nebraska in 2009. 22-year old John Nelson was stopped for following his R-V too closely. He was caught with a half-ounce of marijuana -- and when troopers found the cash in a backpack, they figured it was going to be used for a major drug purchase. A federal magistrate sided with the officers, but the Eighth Circuit federal appeals court overturned the confiscation on Friday, and ordered that Nelson get his money back.

Milwaukee attorney Patrick Brennan, who represented Nelson, won his argument that the government's only evidence was theory and conjecture. Brennan said Nelson was planning to move from Cedarburg to Colorado -- but he returned after a few weeks, because his new city restricted ownership of a pit bull he owned.
