The state of Utah is $175,800 richer thanks to the forfeiture of drug money gathered from the sale of highly addictive methamphetamine.

The cash came from convicted dealer Darold Hinsch, who led police to a hiding place after he was arrested in May 1993.Third District Judge John Rokich ordered the money forfeited this week. It will be distributed to the Metro Narcotics Strike Force for their use in fighting the drug war if no appeal is filed within 30 days.
