CULLODEN, Ga. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors say that $440,000 seized from an Upson County home is drug money.

The man whose home was raided for the cash say it's his legitimately earned cash.

The Macon Telegraph reports that the dispute is now in the hands of a federal court.

Authorities seized the money on July 26 from Gray's home in Upson County, about 75 miles south of Atlanta. The Upson County Narcotics Task Force had been investigating Gray for about three years amid tips that he was dealing cocaine out of his home.

According to the feds' case filings, a raid turned up 5.8 ounces of cocaine, scales, packing material and almost $440,000 in cash stored in a closet and a Coors Light coin bank.

Gray has been charged with cocaine trafficking.
