Authorities in Georgia reportedly seized more than $500,000 in cash from two Colombian men during a traffic stop on Interstate 75.
Deputies with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office pulled over a vehicle that was “in and out of lanes, just moving over the line,” Sheriff Ashley Paulk said, according to WALB-TV.

The vehicle traveling south had “a very slow limit of speed on interstate” to the point the deputies “thought the driver might be impaired.”
When the two men were pulled over, they reportedly appeared nervous. Deputies worked with K-9s to search the car and reportedly found the money stuffed in duffle bags and a dog food bag.
