SEWARD, Neb. — Authorities say a 55-year-old Washington man has been arrested because pot was found in his car after a traffic stop in southeast Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper pulled over the car for speeding about 10 a.m. Sunday near the Crete exit off eastbound Interstate 80. A drug dog taken to the scene alerted officers to the odor of drugs. The patrol says more than 83 pounds of marijuana was found in the car trunk.
The car driver and lone occupant was identified as Kris Robertson, of Camas, Clark County. Robertson remained in Seward County Jail on Tuesday. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney.
