Nebraska State Patrol troopers seized about 270 pounds of marijuana and several thousand THC vape cartridges in a traffic stop on Interstate 80 last week.

About 8:15 p.m. Thursday, a trooper saw a Dodge Ram pickup truck make an improper lane change near Giltner, the patrol said in a release. During the traffic stop, a patrol drug dog detected the presence of a controlled substance coming from the covered bed of the pickup.

The marijuana, more than 3,600 THC vape cartridges and 2 pounds of THC concentrate were found during a search.

The driver, a 27-year-old man from Raleigh, North Carolina, was arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana — more than one pound and possession with intent to deliver. He was taken to the Hamilton County Jail.
