Illinois State Police seized $239,900 on Interstate 80 westbound in Bureau County on Sept. 10.

Bureau County State’s Attorney Geno Caffarini has filed forfeiture proceedings on the cash. A notice was given to Kenneth Lang-Knight, Solomon Rolandus Fox, Tracey Irving and any other claimants to the cash seizure.
