Authorities say a California man has been arrested after 80 pounds of marijuana were found in a vehicle he was driving down Interstate 80 in western Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper pulled over a sport utility vehicle that had been speeding near the Roscoe interchange just after 5 p.m. Thursday.
The patrol says the driver gave permission for a vehicle search. The patrol says the pot was found in a duffel bag and a luggage carrier that had been placed in the back of the SUV.
The driver, who was alone in the SUV, was identified as 38-year-old Matthew Hornsby, of Mariposa, Calif.
A Keith County jailer said Hornsby remained in custody on Friday, pending $250,000 bail. Online court records don't list his attorney's name.
