In the early morning hours Thursday, a Seward County Sheriff’s deputy conducted a routine traffic stop on U.S. HIghway 54. During the stop, the deputy became suspicious of the answers being given by the driver and passenger of the vehicle. Further investigation with the assistance of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation uncovered a hidden compartment in the vehicle. Law enforcement officials found approximately $63,000 in U.S. currency hidden in the compartment. The 29-year-old male passenger was arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant. No charges have been filed in connection with the traffic stop at this time. Courtesy photo
