JACKSON (WILX)-- During a routine traffic stop Michigan State Police found $220,000 dollars.

It happened Friday night around eight o'clock, when troopers in Jackson County pulled over a car following another vehicle too closely. Troopers asked to search the car and the driver willingly gave consent. A dog from the K9 unit sniffed out a suitcase in the trunk. The driver gave the troopers permission to cut open the suitcase and that's where they found the money.

It's the third largest MSP forfeiture in Jackson County history.
