Feds raid S.C. home to seize Land Rover in EPA emission-control crackdown
When it comes to environmental regulation compliance, the Department of Homeland Security isnât playing â as evidenced by a recent federal raid of a South Carolinianâs home to confiscate a Land Rover that violated EPA emission rules.
Jennifer Brinkley said she saw a line of law enforcement vehicles approaching her home and wondered what was wrong, the local WBTV reported. Homeland Security agents then went to her 1985 Land Rover Defender and lifted the hood.
âThey popped up the hood and looked at the Vehicle Identification Number and compared it with a piece of paper and then took the car with them,â she said, WBTV reported.
She told Fox News that she was told the agents seized the vehicle because they thought it violated the Clean Air Act â though at the time, they werenât completely sure. She also said her vehicle was just one of 40 that feds seized in various locations that same day for the same reason.
Sorry if this was posted already I searched and didn't find one.
So are they going to take all antique cars as well? Are they going to leave only a privileged few their property?
