Police who stopped a Surrey man for speeding found more than they expected this week.

On Tuesday (Jan. 29) afternoon in Darfield, on Highway 5 north of Kamloops, a car driven by a 35-year-old was pulled over for speeding.

"While dealing with the driver the officer noted several indicators that caused him to enter into an investigation under the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act," said Cpl. Dan Moskaluk in a press release.

With the help of a police dog, a search of the vehicle revealed a suitcase and bag in the trunk containing $61,140 cash.

The man was charged with possession of property obtained by crime and is scheduled to appear in Kamloops Provincial Court on April 11.
