Neb. State Patrol Seizes Marijuana in Traffic Stop

By  | 

The Nebraska State Patrol says a traffic stop along Interstate 80 near the Lincoln airport has netted nearly 39 pounds of marijuana.

The patrol says a car was stopped on suspicion of speeding just before 10 a.m. Wednesday. A police drug-sniffing dog indicated the smell of illegal drugs coming from the car, and a search of it uncovered 36 packages of marijuana located in two duffel bags in the trunk.

The 63-year-old driver from Klamath River, Calif., was arrested and jailed on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
