Police find $53K during traffic stop in London, Ky.

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A traffic stop in London, Kentucky turned out to be anything but routine when police found $53,000 in concealed cash.

Officers called in a K-9 unit along Interstate 75 -- after getting conflicting answers to questions from the driver and passenger about where they had been. The money was found hidden in a special compartment under the car.

Both claim they knew nothing about the cash.

Police confiscated the money and released the pair -- but not before citing them for speeding.

Officials are still trying to figure out where the money came from.
