I used to get pulled over in Louisiana on my way to work because I have Texas plates on my car and was driving at night, so I could meet a boat at 6 am in Venice, Morgan City, or Port Fouchon. Its really annoying. I have to explain the equipment in my car, some of which I didn't own. One guy was stuck in <<Blank>> Parish because the Deputies decided the lab equipment he uses on the oil rig to test core samples was equipment to build a meth lab. Finally after two days lawyers from the company and the client the stuff back but it was a pain.

At the very least, they should have to prove through a balance of probabilities to a civil court that they are taking the proceeds of crime.
