Authorities have seized more than 360 pounds of marijuana and the arrested four people in two separate traffic stops on Interstate-80.
The first stop was just before 12:30 p.m., Wednesday, when a Nebraska State Trooper pulled over an eastbound 2012 Chevy Traverse for failure to signal at the Shelton I-80 exit.
A state patrol dog indicated drugs in the vehicle, State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said.
Troopers found 330 pounds of marijuana inside 13 bundles that were packed in seven duffel bags in the cargo area of the SUV.
The driver, James Villa, 42, and passenger Brenda C. Noriega, 23, both of Tucson, Ariz., were taken to the Buffalo County Jail, charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
Earlier Wednesday, a traffic stop around 9 a.m. led to the seizure of 30 pounds of marijuana and the arrest of two men from Michigan.
Collins said a trooper stopped an eastbound 2008 Cadillac Escalade for speeding near the Giltner exit in Hamilton County. The trooper was given consent to search the vehicle and found 30 pounds of marijuana in a luggage rack on top.
Another vehicle, a 2012 Kia Soul traveling with the Escalade was also stopped.
The driver of the Escalade, Timothy A. Davis, 36, of St. Clair Shores, Mich., was lodged in the Hamilton County Jail on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
The driver of the second car, Joshua M. Sword, 36, Westland, Mich., was also put in the Hamilton County Jail on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, Collins said.
Just three days earlier, a traffic stop near the Odessa Exit led to the the seizure of nearly 16 pounds of marijuana. Two men from Florida were arrested, Collins said.
