Oklahoma Supreme Court to Norman police: Give store its pipes back

Police seized hundreds of glass pipes from The Friendly Market in Norman in 2015.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled police have to give them back.

The Oklahoman's Brianna Bailey reports: 

Robert Cox, owner of The Friendly Market, has been trying to get police to return hundreds of glass pipes and other store inventory valued at $15,000 seized during two raids in 2015.

The store was forced to close after the raids.

Cox has said he hopes to eventually resume sales and reopen the business.

A Cleveland County jury acquitted Cox on drug-related charges in connection with his ownership of The Friendly Market earlier this year. The store sold glass pipes, as well as home decor and local art.

Cleveland County Special Judge Steve Stice ruled in July that items Norman police seized should be returned to Cox. The judge made no finding as to whether the items are drug paraphernalia.
