Federal agents report a drug bust in Iowa’s capitol city that set a new record for confiscated cash.The Iowa Highway Patrol’s been crowing this year about several large cash seizures but now the U-S Drug Enforcement Administration holds the new title for most money ever seized in an Iowa drug sting. D-E-A agents say the small home they raided in Des Moines last week contained one-point-three MILLION dollars in cash. Some of it was buried in the basement, stashed in a heating duct, hidden in a toolbox, even crammed into blue jeans. Agents also found ten pounds of methamphetamine in the west-side house. Four suspects are in custody, all immigrants from El Salvador.
