Okay, so, what was this guy arrested for?
Why were his homes searched?
Suspicious activity is one thing, but, suspicious activity does not equate to doing something illegal. Last I checked, there'd need be evidence that
this fellow was committing crimes and guilty of something illegal before getting raided, scooped up and searched.
Edit: okay, here's from the link why he was arrested and what led to the search:
Police arrested Antigua in the coastal Florida city of New Port Richey on August 1 for violation of parole and a traffic offense. But that was not
the first dealings authorities had had with the mysterious man,
Steffens told reporters. In May, Steffens said he met Antigua at a memorial ceremony and he was wearing the blue uniform of a lieutenant commander of
the U.S. Coast Guard. Antigua introduced himself to Steffens as a member of the Coast Guard and asked questions about the ceremony. Steffens said he
saw Antigua again when he was being arrested on August 1.
When he was in custody, an officer noticed that the identification card Antigua provided seemed strange and had plastic where it shouldn't have been.
This launched the investigation that led to the stash, Steffens said.
