Judge: Cops Must Return Money Confiscated From Stripper

They swiped a million bucks during a traffic stop


A federal judge has ordered police in Nebraska to return $1 million confiscated from an exotic dancer during a traffic stop.

Tara Mishra, 33, of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., had been saving the money $1 at a time since age 18 to start her own business and get out of the exotic dancing business, according to ABC News.

Nebraska state troopers confiscated the money when they pulled her and a friend over for speeding in March 2012.
