CHICAGO — In a first for Chicago Police, investigators served a warrant on the Cook County Circuit Court clerk's office Friday to seize $10,000 that investigators say was posted to get an alleged drug dealer out of jail.

Law enforcement officials said the seizure warrant, signed by a judge Friday, is the first time a police department in the county has used a warrant to confiscate drug money used for bond money.

"To the best of our knowledge, it has not been done, at least on the state level," said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Anthony Kyriakopoulos. "I am not aware of any warrant being served on the clerk of the Circuit Court."
