About $3,500 in cash police seized from The Friendly Market was returned this week, but store owner Robert Cox is still waiting for about $15,000 worth of glass pipes and other items to be returned. 

In a memo to Cox's attorneys, Norman City Attorney Jeff Bryant said the city believes the items are drug paraphernalia and won't be returned. 

Here's a link to the city memos from Bryant and Norman Police Chief Keith Humphrey, as well as a detailed inventory of items seized from The Friendly Market.
