A Rankin County drug interdiction task deputy stopped a Ford passenger vehicle for a traffic violation on Interstate 20 near downtown Brandon Tuesday evening around 8 p.m. During the traffic stop, the deputy suspected the vehicle was carrying drugs and contraband.

The vehicle was taken to the Rankin County Sheriff's office shop where a search revealed $375,060.00 hidden in the vehicle. 

The Driver, identified as Alexandra Arreola, was taken to the Rankin County jail and charged with money laundering. District Attorney Michael Guest has started forfeiture procedures on the money and the vehicle. 

The Flowood Police Department and the Mississippi Highway Patrol assisted with the case.
