Mich. bust yields 6 tons of marijuana, $93,000 in cash

WYOMING, Mich. (AP) - Federal authorities say a drug bust in West Michigan netted more than 6 tons of marijuana along with about $93,000 in cash.

The Grand Rapids Press reports the marijuana was found Friday at a warehouse in Grand Rapids-area community of Wyoming following a tip. Court documents shows that the money includes about $85,000 from the home of 1 of 6 people charged in the case.

Each is charged with marijuana conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute the drug. Prosecutors are seeking forfeiture of the cash.

Authorities say the marijuana was found in nearly 500 bales.
