Charles R. Allen, 30, of Emeryville, Calif., and Sivon P. Smith, 26, of San Francisco, were booked into the Jasper County Jail on Class C felony money laundering charges, according to Indiana State Police.

The men were traveling north at 12:15 p.m. when troopers stopped their vehicle near the DeMotte exit for traffic violations, police said.
