$184K seized from ex-Griz QB in marijuana probe
Federal agents seized more than $184,000 from bank accounts associated with a former University of Montana quarterback and his medical marijuana and automotive detailing businesses.
The recently returned inventories filed with the U.S. District Court show that agents seized $92,600 in cash, $91,425 in cashiers’ checks, two necklaces and a pair of earrings.
The seizures from at least nine accounts and a safety deposit box associated with Jason Washington are part of a yearlong marijuana trafficking investigation by federal authorities.
No charges have been filed and Washington did not return calls for comment Monday from his medical marijuana business, Big Sky Health, or 406 Motoring Automotive Specialists in Missoula.
Washington started five games for the Grizzlies in 2005 before being injured. He was kicked off the team in 2007.
