The Nebraska State Patrol says a Las Vegas man has been arrested after a search of his vehicle turned up 44 pounds of marijuana.

The patrol says a state trooper pulled over the car around 12:30 p.m. Friday on the Utica Spur just north of Interstate 80 in southeast Nebraska

The patrol says one of its drug dogs alerted troopers to the odor of drugs, and troopers soon found the pot in four pieces of luggage in the car trunk.

The driver and lone occupant, 36-year-old Manothin Siriaphone, was arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale.

A Seward County jailer said Siriaphone remained in custody on Monday, pending $25,000 bail. Online court records don't list the case yet.
