A Charlotte County Deputy K-9 alert helped arrest a man accused of possessing drugs and nearly $200,000 in cash, according to deputies.

K-9 Scar indicated that he smelled drugs in the car. Deputies said they found wax dab oil, which contains a high concentration of THC. They also found bags filled with more than $193,000, and small pieces of marijuana flakes.
