I got pulled over and they said i had a drug and needle alert. But i have never been pulled over in this car b4. They searched the car and found money so they took that and my phone aswell as my wifes phone. They never gave me a receipt of taking my things and no card only there names on the back of a macdonalds receipt

They were from wyndham station melbourne. They said they pulled me over coz of a needle alert. It doesnt make sense coz i havent been pulled over in this car since i bought it. I dont think they should have the right to take my wifes phone coz shes just a passenger
