A traffic stop Sunday on eastbound I-80 in Buffalo County led to the seizure of nearly 16 pounds of marijuana and the arrest of two men from Florida.
Just before 8 p.m., a Nebraska State Patrol trooper stopped an eastbound 2004 Ford Crown Victoria for speeding near the Odessa Exit, NSP spokeswoman Deb Collins said. The trooper smelled marijuana. A search led to seizure of 15.8 pounds of marijuana packaged in plastic bags in a box in the trunk.
The driver, Donnovan E. Woodberry, 21, of Santa Rosa Beach, Fla., and passenger Justin P. Hicks, 18, of Niceville, Fla., were both lodged in the Buffalo County Jail. Each man faces a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, Collins said.
