SEWARD, Neb. (AP) -- Two people from Colorado face charges in connection to the discovery of nearly 100 pounds of marijuana in a car in Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the men were stopped Sunday morning on Interstate 80 in Seward County. A trooper stopped the vehicle for following too close.

The trooper was given consent to search the car, where more than 99 pounds of marijuana was found in a suitcase in the trunk.

The driver, 26-year-old Santiago Adame-Melchor, and passenger, 26-year-old Anahit Conejo-Galicoa, both of Aurora, Colorado, were arrested and taken to the county jail. They face a charge each of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

Court records do not list attorneys.
