RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk says the officer suspected drugs were involved in the incident north of Kamloops earlier this week.
The driver from Surrey was detained and a police dog was brought in to sniff out the situation.
Moskaluk says that when the vehicle was searched, a bag stuffed with neatly folded bills was found inside a suitcase in the trunk.
The 35-year-old man will make his first court appearance in Kamloops on April 11.
