Farmington Hills -- Christmas came early for suburban police officers still laughing over a "drive-through drug bust" last weekend. 
  The arrest of Mohamad Hassan, 36, of Detroit, was still paying dividends after police found $89,800 in cash in two of his safety deposit boxes Thursday. Total cash to date in the drug-related seizure: $106,324.   "It's got to be the easiest drug arrest I've ever seen," said Farmington Hills Police Chief William Dwyer, a 39-year police veteran who supervised narcotics investigations in Detroit for several years.   "I don't think we've ever had somebody drive to the prisoner's sally port, knock on the door and tell us where the drugs and cash can be found."   Hassan drove his 1990 Ford Thunderbird past an "Authorized Vehicles Only" sign and into a normally secured area at the suburban station's prisoner lockup. There, a disoriented Hassan pounded on a door, demanding to be let inside.   "He (Hassan) was directed to the main lobby where he was so incoherent officers patted him down for weapons," Dwyer said. "He was unarmed, but then told officers they could find some marijuana hidden in his crotch."   Hassan was found carrying a baggie containing about one-quarter ounce of marijuana and about $3,024 in cash in a backpack.   "He told police he had more money and cash in a suitcase in his car," Dwyer said.   Police also seized the Thunderbird, which contained $13,500 wrapped in duct tape in the passenger compartment, another ounce of marijuana, baggies and a scale.   Hassan said he wanted police to investigate some Detroit neighbors he believed were responsible for abusing his 3-year-old son. The boy, who was with Hassan at the time, lives with his mother in Farmington Hills.   Police said the 22-year-old woman had reported a few hours earlier that Hassan forcibly took their son from her home. The couple are not married.   "She said Hassan sold marijuana and had been smoking crack cocaine for a couple days straight," Dwyer said.   During a search of Hassan's home on Rosemont, police found keys to the safety deposit boxes, which were opened Thursday.   Hassan, whose criminal history includes arrests for drugs, burglary, attempted robbery, larceny and possession of stolen property, was charged with delivery and manufacture of marijuana, a four-year felony. He was being held in the Oakland County Jail.
