Encounter with Stark County Sheriff

Postby captmud » Thu Feb 28, 2019 3:43 pm

With out going into too many details because of pending actions, I opened the door one day to 4 sheriff deputies and a search warrant. Relates to nothing violent or felony. White collar issue is about all I can say. They came in and wanted to seizure Computers, some other stuff, also all firearms and knives. I at the time was wearing a firearm of which I promptly notified. They did seize that weapon along with all other firearms but only the knife I was carrying. They were very respectfull, and I treated them the same way. Some good natured humor, he picked up a container of loaded ar15 mags and stated when its hits the fan hes coming to my house. They unloaded each weapon and left all mags and ammo at the house. Everything was list on the paperwork. They are going to be returned soon im told. All in all the interaction was good considering. As a Note I was not arrested and no charges have been filed. The thing that concerns me most is now they have a list of all my firearms. I must say though that the Deputies were not fanatics and had no problem with citizens having weapons. I was also asked were to buy some of them.

If you can answer this, did the warrant specify the seizure of your firearms and knives, as well as your computer equipment?

That is interesting if it is a white collar investigation unless it is believed they were purchased with converted funds of some type. I know the OP can't speak to that issue but it seems to me that ordering the seizure of firearms as part of a search warrant if it wasn't warranted (pun entirely intended) seems troubling to me.

Carrying a gun is a right, not a crime.

Gun control is racist.

I questioned why the warrant included guns and was told they took anything in the scope of the warrant. Apparently they use a standard search warrant that includes these items. Just goes to show how easy they can confiscate things. Also this incident occurred over 6 months ago as I was hesitant to say anything to quick. Hopefully I will hear something in about a week.
