Traffic Stop Ends With $5300 Bust

Posted: Updated:
London, Kentucky -

A routine traffic stop ends with a $5300 bust. Police in London, Kentucky got a huge surprise after stopping to question two people at a traffic stop on Interstate 75.

Cops say the driver and passenger starting giving out conflicting stories prompting police to bring in a k-9 unit and start searching the car.

"The occupants had conflicting statements about where they'd been so a k9 unit was brought in to search the exterior of the vehicle," said Sgt. Randy Medlock of the London City Police Department.

The officers located what appeared to be an area under the vehicle that was inconsistent with the manufacturing of the vehicle.

The driver and the passenger both claim to know nothing about the money, police ended up confiscating the cash and releasing both individuals, but not before citing them for speeding.

Authorities are still investigating where the money came from.
