Authorities have seized about 80 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop in eastern Nebraska.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Somvilay Vilaysak, 27, was stopped Wednesday during a traffic stop on Interstate 80 near 96th Street.
Authorities say Vilaysak consented to a search of the Honda Civic he had been driving from California to New York. Deputies with the department’s K-9 unit searched the trunk and found about 80 pounds of marijuana in garbage bags and a duffel bag.
Vilaysak was arrested. He faces charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and no tax stamp.
