LINCOLN — A Washington man and one from Missouri have been imprisoned in a Nebraska marijuana case.
Aaron Hilts,27, of Lacey, Wash., was given two to three years in prison for attempted delivery of the 22 pounds of pot. Twenty-six-year-old Mazeyar Attaran, of Ellisville, Mo., was given 44 to 96 months in prison for trying to avoid arrest and for aiding and abetting the attempted delivery of drugs.
The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper noticed two vehicles traveling together on Interstate 80 in Lincoln on March 9 last year.
The trooper pulled over one of them, which was driven by Hilts, and the marijuana was found inside.
The vehicle driven by Attaran was forced into a ditch after a chase by another trooper.
