Over $9,000 in cash, along with marijuana and a firearm, were found after a traffic stop along the interstate.

Two people were arrested, and over $9,000 was seized after a traffic stop.

The incident occurred on June 5 when officers with the Grantville Police Department were conducting traffic enforcement along Interstate 85. An officer spotted a car traveling 96 mph and conducted a traffic stop.

When speaking to the driver, the officer reportedly noted a strong odor of marijuana coming from the interior of the car, according to Lt. Cliff Schriefer of the Grantville Police Department.

During a search of the car, police found approximately four ounces of packaged marijuana, over $9,000 in cash, along with a firearm, Schriefer said.

A female deputy performed a search on the passenger and located additional marijuana and $300 cash.

The two were reportedly coming back from Atlanta to Mobile, Alabama.

The passenger, identified as April Danielle Sanders, 34, was charged with narcotics possession with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
