California man accused of having cocaine and a lot of cash

Posted by wlpo on October 22, 2012

You probably don’t have $283,000 in the bank let alone in your car.  State troopers say they found that much money in cash and nearly three pounds of cocaine after pulling over a man from California.

Keith Ashanti was stopped Friday morning on Interstate 80 in Bureau County.  Troopers searched the car after the police dog smelled drugs.  Police say a false compartment in the back of the SUV had several duct taped bundles of cash and 2.9 pounds of cocaine.

Ashanit was arrested for possession of cocaine with intent to deliver and was taken to the Bureau County Jail.
