Two of Chicago's finest went on primetime TV to win $100,000 for their fallen comrades.

Tuesday night, all eyes were on the big screen TVs at the Snuggery Pub in Edison Park.

Police officers gathered there to cheer on detectives John Korolis and Michele Wood.

They were investigators on ABC's game show "Take the Money and Run".

Detectives Korolis and Wood tracked down a hidden suitcase stuffed with $100,000 because the contestants caved in to interrogators and gave up the location.

The prize money will go to the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.
