Police seized a large stash of crack cocaine and cash during a drug bust in Connecticut this week.

Authorities believe 28-year-old Melissa Lepore was also involved in a massive marijuana-selling operation.

Along with drugs, police found nearly $145,000 in cash while executing a search warrant on Ellsworth Street in Bridgeport Tuesday.

Police say the cash had been buried in the ground in another part of Connecticut and subsequently dug up and moved to the home.

Investigators also seized a Jeep vehicle.
