HEFLIN, Ala. (AP) - Police in Heflin found drugs and more than $17,000 when they searched a car during a traffic stop.

Chief A.J. Benefield tells Al.com (https://bit.ly/1zfM2g9 ) officers arrested Jerrell Lawson around 8 p.m. Thursday during a traffic stop. Benefield says officers smelled marijuana coming from a vehicle they had stopped, and Lawson gave them a Pennsylvania driver’s license that turned out to be fake.

Benefield says the man agreed to let officers search his vehicle and a police dog found a plastic bag containing the drug MDMA, which is commonly known as “Molly.” Officers also found $17, 276 in Lawson’s possession.

Lawson faces charges of drug possession and using a false ID to obstruct justice. He was being held on $30,000 bond. It was not immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.
