Authorities in Omaha have confiscated about 50 pounds of marijuana following a traffic stop.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says the pot bust happened Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 80.

A deputy stopped a Ford pickup truck driven by Nathan Holt, of Bend, Ore., for following too close.

The deputy became suspicious of illegal drugs in the vehicle and deployed a department canine.

A search of the truck's utility box on the pickup bed let to the confiscation. Authorities say the drugs have a street value of $250,000.

The 30-year-old Holt was arrested and remains in custody. His charges include possession with intent to deliver marijuana.

Records do not list an attorney for Holt.
