CODY, Wyo. (AP) — U.S. authorities are holding a plane and nearly $260,000 in cash seized by Cody police pending an investigation.

The Powell Tribune reports that a police dog indicated it smelled narcotics on the Cessna aircraft Feb. 28 at Yellowstone Regional Airport.

No drugs were found, but a search of a hotel room occupied by two men who flew the plane found $258,000 in cash in a duffel bag. The cash and plane were turned over to U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement.

The pilot, Scott Lewis of Englewood, Colo., was cited Monday for two misdemeanor charges alleging the plane was not properly registered and that he flew the aircraft without carrying a license. Lewis told the court he did have a valid license.

He was released on his own recognizance. His companion was not cited.
