ONLY ON CVP: A routine traffic stop by a Paramus police officer led to the discovery of a bag of marijuana and $6,000 in cash, both of which were seized in the arrest of a Rhode Island man.

Officer Anthony Mordaga stopped a rented 2014 Dodge Charger on southbound Route 17 near Midland Avenue around 1 a.m. Wednesday for not properly maintaining a lane, Deputy Police Chief Robert Guidetti told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Mordaga smelled pot and spotted a clear plastic bag of the drug in the center console, Guidetti said.

Bryan Nelson, 29, of Providence, RI, was being held on $5,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with drug possession and money laundering.
