Large Amount Of Cash Found During Traffic Stop

Posted: Updated:
Meridian -

With a new administration, both at City Hall and at the Police Department, a new revitalizing energy has been brought to the enforcement of local, state and federal laws. Through innovative approaches, new takes on old actions and a general... overall reworking of how business is done, the new City Administrations have taken the next step in not only curbing crime but taking the fight to the criminal.

As an example of the new efforts being used to fight crime within Meridian, yesterday a normal traffic stop on I-20 resulted in the seizure of $364,590 in cash. This money was concealed in a compartment inside a passenger car that was traveling through Meridian. Through good investigative work by the Officer, the secret compartment was located and the money found inside.

This money, once turned over to the City after legal proceedings, will be a shot in the arm to help supplement much needed supplies and equipment that are vital to the day to day operations and long term goals of the men and women of the Police Department. Hopefully this will be the first of many examples of how the Meridian Police Department, the new City government and most importantly the people of Meridian will stand together to fight crime and return this City to its former glory.
