Court documents show federal authorities are seeking to seize $195,000 of possible drug money found in two suitcases in the woods in Rhode Island.
A Drug Enforcement Administration agent said in court papers seeking forfeiture filed last week that boys playing in the woods in Barrington found the first suitcase in October and told a parent who took it to the police station.
Documents say the boys led police to where they found the first suitcase and officers located the second one.
The agent says there's cause to believe that the money "is the proceeds" of drug sales or was intended to buy drugs.
Documents say federal authorities want the money based on laws that allow the civil forfeiture of money "involved in or used to facilitate drug trafficking.
