ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Highway Patrol says officers seized over $138,000 in cash in a traffic stop on Interstate 80 east of Rock Springs.

The Highway Patrol announced that officers stopped a Chevy sedan at about 10 a.m. on Saturday for speeding.

The patrol states that a drug-sniffing dog alerted to the presence of a controlled substance in the car and a search found the cash and a small amount of methamphetamine.

Officers issued a 37-year-old California woman a misdemeanor citation for passion of the drugs and she and two others in the car were released.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration assisted with the case and has taken over custody of the cash.
