RENO, Nevada---A rural Nevada county
has settled lawsuits with two men who
said a sheriff s deputy violated their civil
rights when they were stopped for
speeding on Interstate 80, searched for
drugs and forced to forfeit tens of thou-
sands of dollars even though no drugs
were found and no charges filed in either
The Humboldt County District Attor-
ney s Office also confirmed in a statement
it has launched an internal review of the
county sheriff s "forfeiture programme"
but that there is no indication there have
been any illegal stops or any wrongdoing
on the party of Sheriff Ed Kilgore or his
Tan Nguyen of Newport, Calif, and
Michael Lee of Denver said in lawsuits
filed in US District Court in Reno they
were stopped last year on US Interstate
80 near Winnemucca about 165 miles
east of Reno under the pretext of speed-
ing. They said they were subjected to
illegal searches and told they wouldn t
be released with their vehicles unless
they forfeited their cash.
The suits accused the same veteran
deputy, Lee Dove, of taking a briefcase
full of $50,000 cash from Nguyen after
stopping him for exceeding the speed
limit by 3 mph in September, and seizing
$13,800 and a handgun from Lee during
a similar stop in December.
"The case has been settled," Steve
Balkenbush, a Reno attorney representing
Humboldt County in the case, told The
Associated Press on Friday.
The district attorney s office said the
settlement involved both Nyguen and Lee but
not disclose how much money was involved.
Nguyen s lawyer told a Reno television station
Friday he received a check for the full $50,000
seized as well as $10,000 in attorney fees.
"He wasn t charged with anything. He had no
drugs in his car. The pretext for stopping him
was he was doing 78 in a 75," John Ohlson told
"It s like Jesse James or Black Bart," he told
AP in an interview last week.
Lee s Reno lawyer, Jeff Dickerson, did not
immediately return a call seeking comment
The district attorney s statement said both
men were stopped legally and that "every asset
that was seized pursuant to those stops was law-
fully seized." But it acknowledged the resolution
of their claims didn t receive priority in the
district attorney s office because of staff short-
"The cases involved Mr Nguyen and Mr Lee
raised procedural issues in the District Attorney s
Office and those issues are being addressed by
a review of every submitted case," the statement
It said media reports about the lawsuits had
"unfairly criticised" the sheriff s office, which
"was acting in accordance with the law as they
understood it and was not responsible for any
procedural defects following their seizure of the

KARACHI, PAKISTAN---An angry crowd set fire
to a Hindu community centre in southern Pak-
istan after allegations circulated that a Hindu
had desecrated Islam s holy book, police said
The incident took place overnight in the city
of Larkana in Sindh province after some people
said they saw burned pages of the Quran in a
garbage bin near the home of a Hindu man, said
Anwar Laghari, the area police officer.
Violence triggered by allegations of Quran
desecration and other allegedly blasphemous
acts is common in conservative Pakistan.
A controversial Pakistani law imposes the
death penalty, but sometimes crowds take the
law into their own hands and attacked the
accused, often members of a religious minority
in the majority Sunni Muslim state.
Laghari said that a crowd of about 200 angry
people gathered and attacked the community
centre, which was next to a Hindu temple.
He said the building was partly gutted, while
the alleged desecrater and his family members
were taken into protective custody.
The officer said initial investigation revealed
that the Hindu rented the house from a Muslim
family and cleaned it before he moved in. He
may have burned the holy book inadvertently,
the policeman said.
Crowds also attacked Hindu property in the
nearby towns of Usta Mohammad, Dera Allah
Yar and Sohbat Pur, but they were dispersed by
police, senior officer Syed Ashfaq Anwar said.
They are in a part of adjoining Baluchistan
province where significant numbers of Hindus
Anwar said dozens attempted to set fire to a
temple and some shops owned by Hindus. Police
fired tear gas shot and shot into the air. He said
someone from the crowd fired at the police, and
two civilians and an officer were wounded. (AP)
