How about this: in many parts of the US, the police can seize money and valuables from a person. They don't even have to charge that person with a crime when they do so. The person will then be required to prove ownership and pay a fee to get their stuff back. If the person can't afford to pay the fees, the county keeps it. This is completely legal, and in most cases police are given incentives to do this.
