MOUNT COMFORT, Ind. (AP) – Three Indiana state highway workers cleaning up litter alongside Interstate 70 just east of Indianapolis found about $100,000 in an abandoned tire.

State police suspect the cash – which photos show to be in denominations of $5 to $100 – may be drug money. Indiana State Police spokesman Mike Burns says a drug-sniffing dog found the scent of drugs on the cash.

Police say the workers found the tire Friday in a ditch near the Mount Comfort Road exit on I-70. When they picked it up, the tire fell apart, revealing the cash, and the workers called police.

I saw a recently dumped tire in my neighborhood. I need to pick it up.
