The early part of a dayshift is probably the last time of day you would expect to make a career arrest.  But in law enforcement anything can happen.

New Jersey State Trooper Stephen Spitaleri was monitoring the southbound traffic of the Turnpike at about 9:30 a.m. last Thursday.   He noticed a blue Ford Expedition driving erratically in the area of Fort Lee.

Trooper Spitaleri stopped the vehicle and began interviewing the driver.  He became suspicious and inquired further.

During the investigation a search of the vehicle was conducted and a hydraulically operated compartment was found hidden inside the truck.  A sealed box was also found.

Ultimately, troopers observed U.S. currency in the box. 

So, they counted it.  And counted, and counted, and counted.

When the counting was done, it was determined that Trooper Spitaleri's stop resulted in the seizure of almost $800,000.00.

The money was seized, and the two occupants of the vehicle were charged with Money Laundering and Conspiracy.  They were both lodged in the Bergen County Jail in default of $500,000. bail. honors Trooper Stephen Spitaleri.
