Montague police seize thousands of dollars in suspected drug money

Posted: Updated:
MONTAGUE, MA (WSHM) -

More than $5,300 has been seized by Montague police after a routine traffic stop turned up what is believed to be drug money.

Police say they pulled a driver over in Turners Falls on Friday for failing to stop at a sign.

Authorities knew the driver had drug convictions in the past, and they called a drug-detecting K-9 officer to the scene.

The dog immediately sniffed out the cash.

The money is being held, and is in the process of being taken as a drug forfeiture.
