WALKER v. NEW SMYRNA BEACH POLICE DEPARTMENT (2002)
District Court of Appeal of Florida,Fifth District.
Carl WALKER, Appellant, v. NEW SMYRNA BEACH POLICE DEPARTMENT, Appellee.
Decided: December 06, 2002
Carl Walker, Madison, Pro Se. No Appearance for Appellee.
Carl Walker appeals the trial court's order denying his petition for the return of $1,718 seized by the police at the time of his arrest. We affirm. As the appellant, Walker has the burden to demonstrate error. See Applegate v. Barnett Bank of Tallahassee, 377 So.2d 1150 (Fla.1979). At the hearing on his motion, Walker offered no evidence or argument in support of his claim for the return of the cash allegedly seized from him at the time of his arrest. As such, Walker failed to demonstrate that the money was improperly retained by the New Smyrna Beach Police Department.
HARRIS, GRIFFIN and ORFINGER, J.J., concur.
