    Indiana authorities on Tuesday offered the reminder that any cash found along the Interstate is federal property and should be turned into police.

    The warning comes days after a bank robbery in La Porte, Ind., was followed by a more than 100 mile police chase that included money being tossed out of a vehicle's window.

    David Ziesel, 32, was ultimately arrested at a home in Elburn. He's now in custody in Indiana and could face up to 25 years in prison.
