Milwaukee man arrested after police find pot, cash during traffic stop

YORKVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man is facing possible drug charges after Racine County officers stopped him for a vehicle violation, and they found marijuana and $14,000 in cash. 

The sheriff's department said Tuesday that the man and his wife were in an SUV stopped last Tuesday on southbound Interstate 94 in the town of Yorkville. Officers said the inside of the vehicle had strong odors of marijuana and air fresheners. 

As deputies searched the SUV, they found a small amount of pot and two plastic-wrapped packages of money -- one for $8,000 and the other for $6,000. Deputies seized the cash. 

The woman said she had no knowledge of either the marijuana or the money.

The man claimed he was merely saving the cash. He was arrested and taken to the Racine County Jail.
