Kane County prosecutors want $270,000 seized in an Aurora heroin bust, including $190,000 found in a vehicle's hidden compartment, permanently forfeited to the state.

According to court records, prosecutors will present forfeiture notices on criminal cases involving three people arrested in April as part of an investigation that led to a $1.35 million, nine-kilogram heroin bust in Aurora.
