CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Charleston police officers thought something was amiss Oct. 5 when they saw a man riding on the side of an SUV, holding onto the vehicle's roof rack and driver's side door.

They stopped the vehicle, and the man told officers the driver of the vehicle owed him $300, police said. Investigators said he also told them the driver sold him fake drugs and that drugs or weapons might be in the vehicle.

The man was right, according to a news release from the Charleston Police Department.

Department spokesman Charles Francis said Friday that a search of the vehicle netted 99 Oxycodone pills and more than $5,000 in counterfeit money.

Brady Lucas, 20, of Moncks Corner, is charged with possession of a controlled substance.

The United States Secret Service is investigating the counterfeit money, Francis said.
