The Nebraska State Patrol says two traffic stops along Interstate 80 netted nearly 200 pounds of marijuana.

A patrol news release says a traffic stop Thursday afternoon near Lincoln turned up 153 pounds of marijuana hidden in a large compartment in the under carriage of a van. The driver of the van, 25-year-old Jose Moreno-Morales of Albuquerque, was arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana with intent to deliver.

Earlier in the day, troopers stopped and searched a rental truck near Lincoln. The patrol says the search uncovered 41 pounds of marijuana hidden in the truck's cargo area, as well as a handgun in the cab.

The truck's driver, 57-year-old Robert Shipley of Auburn, Calif., was arrested on suspicion of drug and weapons violations.
