Police seized $232,530 in cash after a central Nebraska traffic stop because officers believe the money came from illegal drug sales.
The Nebraska State Patrol confiscated the money April 5 after a trooper stopped a car for speeding in a construction zone along Interstate 80 near Kearney.
Buffalo County Court records say the trooper smelled marijuana while he was talking to the 32-year-old driver of the car.
The 38-year-old passenger admitted smoking the drug.
When the driver got out of the car, the trooper saw three bundles of money on the floor. A small box of cash was found after the vehicle was searched.
Both men were ticketed for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana and drug paraphernalia before being released.
