Montgomery Police Confiscate Cash During Traffic Stop

Montgomery, Alabama – Montgomery Police make a big find during a routine traffic stop. Police stopped the driver of a tractor trailer recently for driving 62 miles per hour in a 50 miles per hour zone on Interstate 85 recently.

Police dogs sniffed out a suspicious package that contained $345,915. Police questioned the driver about the money; but he claimed he did not know how it got there.

Police released the driver but kept the money. Police say that at some point the money must have been in contact with illegal drugs, and that's why the K-9 Unit found it.
