REVELSTOKE, B.C. - A complaint of an erratic driver on Highway 1 east of Revelstoke resulted in a $1.9-million cash seizure by RCMP.

Police say they stopped a vehicle from eastern Canada, with two men inside, on Sept. 8.

Both men were detained and then arrested for possession of property obtained by crime.

Officers say a subsequent search with help from a police-service dog uncovered the $1.9 million in cash.

The men, who police say are both from eastern Canada, were released on their own recognizance with a future court date.

Police say it's a reminder to motorists that they all have a role to play because someone alerted police to the way the vehicle was being driven and RCMP acted on that information.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 19, 2019.
