Cash them out.

NYPD officers assisting Jersey City cops in a search that led to Brooklyn found themselves in a drug den with nearly $1 million in cash and 100 pounds of marijuana.

The finest were helping the New Jersey police track down a man wanted on arson and terroristic threat charges, authorities said. The joint forces went, with a search warrant, cops said, to the Crown Heights apartment on Montgomery St. near Schenectady Ave. at about 10 p.m. Friday.

They arrested Humphrey Olivio, 36, Yazmin Olivio, 30, and Jose Pichardo, 24, on charges including criminal possession of marijuana and criminal sale of marijuana.
