Police Dog Sniffs Out $1.7M In Cash

BOSTON (CBS) – A police dog sniffed out over $1 million in cash during a traffic stop last week.

“Axel,” a Mass. State Police K-9 and his owner, Sgt. Charles Cane, pulled over a car near Hanscom Field in Bedford on Oct. 28, police said.

The two people inside the car consented to a search of their rented car. According to police, Sgt. Cane found two suitcases inside.

Axel was brought over to the suitcases for a sniff test. Police said Axel detected a drug smell coming from the suitcases. When Cane opened the suitcases, he found $1.7 million in cash.

The people who were in the car would not say where the money came from. They referred all questions to an attorney.
