State Seizes More Cash This Year
Cheyenne, Wy – The state has seized more than one-point-four-million dollars this year in cash and property used in suspected crimes.
The sum through late November far surpasses the 190-thousand-dollars collected last year.
The deputy director of the Division of Criminal Investigation is Kebin Haller.
He says some of the money collected this year stemmed from cases that were begun more than ten years ago.
Haller says the largest amount seized so far was 327-thousand dollars.
The property is often auctioned to the public, and the proceeds -- plus the seized cash -- is used to fund other anti-drug efforts.
