A Mississippi officer found over $360,000 in cash hidden in a car’s secret compartment during a routine traffic stop, police said.
“On Tuesday, July 9, an officer pulled over a driver for a routine traffic violation,” Capt. Dean Harper of the Meridian Police Department told ABC News. “After suspecting that there could be some type of criminal activity he asked the driver for consent to search his car, which the driver gave.”
“During the search the officer found a secret compartment in the car that contained $364,590 in $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills,” Harper said. Police declined to provide details on where the cash was located.
