WESTOVER, Md.– The Somerset County Sheriff's Office says deputies seized cash, drugs and untaxed cigarettes during a weekend traffic stop.

According to police, on Dec. 22 deputies stopped a Chevy Tahoe, driven by 63-year-old Mansour Ahmed Shabaik of Ozone Park, N.Y., for traffic violations. Police say they searched the car and found 469 cartons of untaxed Virginia cigarettes, marijuana and nearly $10,000 in cash.

Police said Shabaik planned to sell half the cigarettes in New York and ship the other half back to family in Egypt.

Shabaik was charged with possession and trafficking untaxed cigarettes, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Shabaik was released on $25,000 unsecured bond pending future court action.
