Police seized the cash and Lowery's vehicle.


Lowery was charged with charged with possession of a schedule VI controlled substance for resale (marijuana),  possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on revoked license 2nd offense, violation of the financial responsibility law and failure to illuminate tag.


He was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $23,000 bond and arraigned Friday in Sessions Court.
