A Michigan police chief says authorities confiscated so much cash during a series of drug raids that they'll need help from a bank to count it.

"We have to get a bank to help us count how much (money) we have," Chief Gerald H. Cliff told the Saginaw News. "We really don't have the resources for that here."

Cliff estimates authorities may have confiscated about $200,000. The raids also turned up weapons, illegal drugs and led to more than 20 arrests.

About 200 law enforcement officials from Saginaw and Midland counties conducted the raids along with police from Saginaw,Saginaw Township and Bay City. The raids took place in Saginaw as well as Bridgeport, Kochville and Saginaw townships.
