My question involves criminal law for the state of: Texas
To start off I had won approximately $13,000 at a casino in Oklahoma last Thursday. On Friday I had purchased a vehicle but was not able to update my tags because it was purchased late in the day so I had to wait until Monday for that. However, I was stopped on Sunday by police because of the tags being expired. After giving police my ID I was told that I had a warrant from another state on old charges that I thought were dropped and got arrested in the process. While being arrested they took my winnings from the casino (I had roughly $7000 on me at the time) and seized it in evidence. My sister had given the police my W2 form from the casino to prove that I did in fact receive it from the casino but because I was arrested on Sunday they had to wait until Monday to call for verification. I was released from jail Monday night after the state where the warrant was issued decided not to get me. Today I went back to the police station where I was initially taken and my money was seized and was told from a receptionist that I had to talk to a detective working my case. I don't understand how there is a case when I was arrested on a warrant and after providing the paperwork needed I still have yet to get my money back. What else needs to be done in order to receive my winnings back?
