WESTOVER, Md.- The Somerset County Sheriff's Office said that on Sunday, a traffic stop in Westover led to the seizure of several drugs, cash and untaxed cigarettes.

Authorities said that a probable cause search revealed 469 cartons of untaxed Virginia cigarettes, marijuana and almost $10,000 when they stopped Mansour Ahmed Shabaik of New York for a traffic violation. 

They said Shabaik told deputies he spent nearly $20,000 on the untaxed cigarettes and planned to sell half of the cigarettes in New York and ship the other half back to family members in Egypt. 

The sheriff's office said that Shabaik was charged with possession and trafficking untaxed cigarettes, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Shabaik was later released on a $25,000 unsecured bond pending court actions.
