SEED THEFT: FBI Releases Wanted Posters

Federal prosecutors are searching for five Chinese nationals who they say tried to steal intellectual property from seed corn companies in Iowa and Illinois.

Officials released these wanted posters Monday afternoon.

Prosecutors say the five men were trying to steal specialized corn strains worth $30-40 million from DuPont-Pioneer and Monsanto.

Police arrested one suspect last year while he was trying to fly out of Chicago.
