CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The United States Secret Service is conducting an investigation after a traffic stop by Charleston Police on October 5 led to the discovery of counterfeit money.

Charleston police stopped 20-year-old Brady Lucas on October 5 around 10:30 p.m. after spotting a man riding on the side of his SUV holding on to the roof rack and driver side door.

According to a report, the man told police he jumped on the vehicle near King and Calhoun streets because Lucas owed him $300 and sold him fake drugs. He also told police that drugs or weapons might be in the SUV.

Police say Lucas declined officer's requests to search the vehicle, so a K-9 officer and his K-9 were called to the scene. The K-9 led officers to the passenger side of the SUV.

The report states a vehicle search uncovered 99 Oxycodone pills and $5,070 in counterfeit money.

Lucas, a Moncks Corner resident, was charged with possession of a controlled substance schedule IV. Any charges regarding the counterfeit money will be filed by the United States Secret Service.

Lucas is being held in the Al Cannon Detention Center, police say.
