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.
