POLICE from Strike Force Raptor have seized $100,000 in cash after returning a lost wallet at Raymond Terrace.
Members of the anti-bikie squad noticed the wallet fall from the roof of a car turning onto the Pacific Highway at Karuah on Monday night.
They stopped to collect the wallet and cash which was scattered over the road.
Police said the Holden Calais stopped before it continued driving south on the highway.
Police pulled over the driver, 26, who appeared to be intoxicated.
A search of the vehicle revealed more than $100,000 in cash, a quantity of the drug ice, cannabis and a knife, police said.
The Lismore man was taken to hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing.
He was later taken to Raymond Terrace police station where he was charged with proceeds of crime, drug, weapon and traffic offences.
He was granted conditional bail to front Raymond Terrace Local Court on April 16.
