IRS seeks owner of $840,000 at Graham storage unit
GRAHAM, N.C. — The Internal Revenue Service is giving the owner of $840,000 in cash found during an Alamance County drug investigation one more month to claim their money.
The Times-News of Burlington reported the money was found in a storage unit in Graham in April. The IRS has published notices in the newspaper saying anyone making a claim for the cash has until Aug. 21 or it will be forfeited to the federal government.
Investigators were eventually led to the storage unit after a traffic stop in 2010 found nearly $1.6 million in boxes in a trailer. The driver of the trailer said he was taking drug money back to Mexico.
Authorities also found ammunition in the storage unit that rented for $95 a month.
