A new law, just signed by Governor Snyder means paying a little less if police seize your things.
It’s called asset forfeiture, and the law has drawn a lot of criticism since it went into effect.
Police can seize property they deem has been used in a crime.
But it’s drawn concern because police were taking cash, vehicles and assets from owners who were never convicted of the crimes.
And the owners still had to pay a bond to get the items back.
The new law eliminates the need to pay that fee, usually worth 10 percent of the property’s value.
