Two people in eastern Nebraska face drug charges after authorities seized more than 24 pounds of marijuana during a weekend traffic stop.
The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper stopped a sport utility vehicle Sunday afternoon on Interstate 80 near the Seward-Lancaster County line, west of Lincoln. The trooper detected the smell of marijuana and found the drug in two plastic buckets inside the vehicle.
Sadedra Williams, of North Las Vegas, Nev., and Marcus Smith, of Lynwood, Ill., each face a felony count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana. They remain at the Seward County Jail.
Records do not list attorneys for the pair.
