My home was searched by a task force. 30-40 guns
were taken, plus a pair of antique swords from the Civil war and several other non-illegal smaller items. I was immediately taken to jail and released after 24 hours with "no charges filed".
Several of the items taken, (i.e. swords for example), are not illegal for me to have.
They claimed they 'heard' there was some drugs being sold from my residence. I told
them my neighbors were raided 3 times for that, but I have never sold drugs to anyone.
I believe it was hearsay. Then, the man produced what he called a search warrant very
briefly. I have never received a copy of any paperwork, search warrant, charges, nothing
but a carbon copy of an inventory of things taken. The problem is, the swords and several other item are not listed on the inventory.
Can I get any of my stuff back? The total for all the items is probably close to $20,000. With no charges filed, I would think all my things should be returned.
Update: I have a nearly 20yr old, non-violent
felony. I read the Missouri law and it states that only non-violent felons
can't own a gun. Am I correct?
