KILGORE, TX (KLTV) - A routine East Texas traffic stop led to the seizure of over $30,000.

Kilgore police say a Honda Accord was stopped by Sergeant Jarod Sears on Interstate 20 on Friday. After speaking with the vehicle's driver, Sears became suspicious of the driver's actions and story.

The driver gave Sears consent to search the car. During the search, $34,970 was found hidden within the vehicle.

Police suspect that both the vehicle and large amount of cash are part of drug trafficking operations.

The driver does not face any criminal charges at this time.
