Two men are behind bars facing several drug charges after police found 18 pounds of pot in their car.

Around 11 p.m. Wednesday, Lancaster County deputies stopped a car for speeding on Interstate 80 near mile marker 396.

The driver, Benjamin Smart of Alabama, wouldn't allow deputies to search the car so they brought in a K-9 Unit.

Police say the K-9 found 17 sealed bags of pot.

Smart and his passenger Joseph Beard, were arrested for possession with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, and various traffic violations.
