Wichita County Sheriff's Office seizes nearly $150,000, and puts a drug dealer behind bars.

Pedro Rojo, 20, is charged with money laundering and possession of marijuana in a drug free zone.

Authorities say when they arrived at Rojo's home they found about $45,000 dollars in cash, drug paraphernalia and small amounts of marijuana.

They say Rojo told them about his stash house, located near Lucy Park, drug free zone, and a storage unit he used.

The Wichita County Sheriff's Office then found three pounds of marijuana, marijuana stems, scales, plastic baggies and about $100,000.

Rojo's total bond is set at $500,000.
