Hotdog Vendor in CA Gets Earnings Confiscated For Operating Without a Permit

UC-Berkeley police officer seizes money from unlicensed food vendor during citation.

The vendor, Beto Matias, told ABC station KGO-TV in San Francisco, "I was in a state of shock when I saw he was taking my money."

Officer Sean Aranas told KGO that the cash was taken as evidence and that he was acting on orders from a supervisor to issue a citation.

While this is certainly a controversial situation, generally every food vendor needs a permit to operate. Get yours for Berkeley or any other city here.
