Lubbock traffic stop will cost somebody $57,915

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A traffic stop made on the streets of Lubbock back in January will cost someone almost $58,000.  And that someone could be Pronto Check Cashing.

Court records show police pulled over two men in the 2600 block of East Auburn in the early morning hours of January 21st.  Police searched the vehicle and found a handgun and what they believe is cocaine base.

Police also found $57,915 dollars cash. But now Dane Church, is doing business as Pronto Check Cashing, has come forward saying that the money was stolen.  Church claims it is "a portion of the money stolen from the Pronto Check Cashing services business and therefore his property."

Federal court records do not say if the men in the car will be charged with stealing the money. They only say that Pronto is making a claim for the money.

It comes up in court as prosecutors seek a forfeiture order so that possibly the government can keep the money.  We'll keep you posted as to what the judge decides.
