Nebraska State Patrol troopers have seized 526 pounds of high-grade marijuana following a traffic stop.
The incident happened on Interstate-80 near mile-marker 370 in Seward County. The stop occurred yesterday morning when a trooper observed an eastbound truck failing to use its turn signal.
During the stop, a K9 detected the odor of a controlled substance. When the vehicle was searched, police discovered seventeen boxes containing $1.5 million worth of marijuana.
Troopers arrested Robert P. Rahon and Felice M. Giorgetti, of California, for possession with intent to deliver, and a drug tax stamp violation.
