MOUNT COMFORT, Ind. (AP) - Three state highway workers cleaning
up litter picked up an abandoned tire - and found about $100,000
Indiana state police suspect the cash, in denominations of $5 to
$100, - may be drug money. State Police spokesman Mike Burns says a
drug-sniffing dog found the scent of drugs on the bills.
Police said the workers found the tire Friday in a ditch along
Interstate 70 just east of Indianapolis.
Police say the tire appeared to be from a large truck. It isn't
clear how long it was in the ditch.
Detective Sgt. Keith O'Donnell commended the workers for their
"honesty and professionalism" in contacting police.
