A traffic stop in Chicago Ridge, Illinois lead to quite an interesting find. You have your weed, your cash, your random drugs, but what about the smokes? PATCH


When a bag of weed was noticed during this traffic stop, it was just the beginning.

Mohammad T. Akubakr, 28, is facing multiple felonies for having these goodies on him. There were seven different types of pills, including Adderall and Hydrocodone. But what about the cash?? Saying that it was the largest cash collection in Chicago Ridge Police Department history, is no joke.

I had an extremely large amount of cash on me once, for a short period of time...I was really uncomfortable. Not to this level, but it was a lot.

The cops pulled out $129,000 in cash. OMG.
