U.S. Attorney To Split Up Money That “Fell Off A Truck”

You have heard the old joke about criminals saying they acquired merchandise after it “fell out of a truck”?  U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett says that is just what happened with about $2.5 million in cash recovered during a drug raid in March, and now his department and several other Indiana law enforcement agencies will split that money.

When no one stepped forward to claim the dough after six months, Hogsett says it became U.S. government property. Most of the money will go to the multi-agency Metro Drug Task Force, but smaller chunks of $50,000 to $150,000 will go to police departments in Indianapolis, Beech Grove, Lawrence, Carmel, Pittsboro, Rushville, and Richmond, as well as to the Hamilton and Hancock County sheriff’s departments and the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office.
