K-9 Lobos helped find bundles of cash tucked into a bag inside a car his partner pulled over.
Sgt. Randy Thumann conducted a traffic stop Thursday around 1 p.m. on Interstate 10 near Flatonia. Thumann interviewed the driver and asked to search the 2014 Chevy Sonic.
He found money in a plastic bag that also contained a new comforter. K-9 Lobos detected the odor of illegal narcotics and alerted on the cash, which totaled $21,575.
Thumann arrested 28-year-old Karim Tare Martinez-Hernandez from Mexico. He was taken to the Dan R. Beck Justice center and faces a money laundering charge.
