Federal authorities have taken custody of more than $130,000 in cold, hard cash, found by three highway workers cleaning up litter alongside Interstate 70, near Mount Comfort, Ind. -- just east of Indianapolis.
State Police say the cash, found stuffed in a tire on the side of the road, was handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents after it was thawed out and counted. The cash totaled $130,120.
Authorities suspect the cash found Friday may be drug money and that a police dog found the scent of drugs on it.
