SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a traffic stop led to a Salisbury man being arrested on multiple drug dealing charges.

Maryland State Police said 29-year-old Kevin Crockett Dykes was stopped for a traffic violation last week. That is when police say a drug-sniffing dog found 4 grams of marijuana in Dykes' pocket. Police said they also found more than $550,000 in cash in the speakers in the back of Dykes' car.

A search warrant was executed at his home where investigator said they found more than 7 pounds of marijuana, along with a kilogram of cocaine, as well as hallucinogenic mushrooms and cash.

Dykes is now charged with several counts of possession of drugs with the intent to distribute.

"We believe it's the largest cash seizure we've seen in recent history in Wicomico County," said Wicomico County State's Attorney Matt Maciarello said.

Dykes is being held in the Wicomico County Detention Center on $500,000 bond. He faces more than 20 years in prison if convicted.
