A Kansas man's complaint about money getting lost in the mail didn't quite get the result he hoped for.
Federal prosecutors say the Lawrence man told postal authorities that he mailed about $10,000 to California, but the cash somehow went astray.
According to court documents, investigators learned the man was allegedly buying marijuana from California by mail, then distributing it in Kansas. State and federal agents raided his home in April and reported finding about $7,100, plus more than a pound of marijuana and drug sales paraphernalia.
Federal prosecutors filed a civil lawsuit Thursday seeking forfeiture of the money agents found in the home.
The Associated Press is not naming the man because he has not been criminally charged.
