Troopers Found Three Hundred Thousand Dollars In A Car Near Highland

Thu, 17 Nov 2011 08:25:15 CST
(Highland)--State Police say they have seized three hundred thousand dollars found in a car they stopped on Interstate 70 near Highland. Troopers announced Wednesday that the money was found four days earlier in a westbound Dodge Durango stopped for improper lane usage.

The cash was in thirty rectangular bundles sealed with electric tape, all hidden in two boxes of new home audio equipment. The motorist gave Troopers permission to search the vehicle. The driver later signed a disclaimer form disavowing any knowledge of the money and was released.

An investigation is ongoing.
