A police dog alerted deputies to a large amount of drug-related cash that was seized during a traffic stop near the Ohio Turnpike.

The Erie County Sheriff's Office seized about $90,000 from the car driven by Willard resident Marcial Lopez, 40, of 9 Washington St., after the traffic stop near the intersection of Smith Road and Ohio 4.

"The driver was very nervous. His hands were trembling uncontrollably," Chief Deputy Jared Oliver said.
