I missed the confiscation part. The seizure laws have been extended so far to give the state the power to declare so many things are part of the crime to make private ownership of property meaningless...it is almost the same as seizure by fiat. The only thing left to do is to just rent everything because the police state generally will not seize property owned by a bank or leasing company.
I don't think there was an administrative seizure in this case, I brought it up sua sponte as another example of the law gone bonkers.
Like the guy losing his motel because a crime was committed in one of the rooms he rented out.
