(WBKO)-- --What started off as a routine traffic stop, quickly turned into a bust worth more than $50,000.
Police were questioning the two people in the car on I-75 near London, Kentucky when their stories started to conflict.
That's when a search was called for the car using a K-9 Officer which revealed a secret compartment with $53,000.
Both people claimed they didn't know anything about the money.
The matter is still being investigated, but the two people were only cited for speeding and then released.
