    A vehicular chase along the highway finishing near UWI’s South Gate resulted in the seizure of $225,000 in cash from an errant driver.

    Around 4:45pm yesterday, motorcycle officers saw a grey Hyundai speeding along the shoulder of the eastbound lane near St Augustine Girls’ High School.

    The driver reportedly failed to stop and later intercepted along College Trace.

    He was ticketed for improper overtaking and officers, smelling what they believed to be marijuana, searched the vehicle.

    They found and seized the cash as the driver could not account for the money – he was detained and is assisting police with the investigation.
