According to the Miami Herald, Miami police have reportedly been ordered to return almost $20,000 in cash to a stripper.
Miami Dade police illegally seized a stretch of guns from a man named Ras Cates, and also took almost $20,000 in cash from his wife Lizmixell Batista during a traffic stop that took place in May 2018.
The cops bragged about the arrest to the local news, but Cates and Batista’s lawyers immediately challenged the arrest, saying it was illegal. At a hearing for the case, another stripper who works with Batista at the Cheetah Club in Miami said the woman made “significant cash tips.” Because of that, a judge ruled there was no probable cause for taking the money, and ordered the police to return the cash.
