A traffic stop on Interstate 80 near the Utica Exit in Seward County leads to the seizure of an estimated $554,000 worth of drugs.
Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins says on Monday, a trooper stopped a westbound 2006 Nissan Armada for following another vehicle too close.
After a consent to search, troopers found 12 packages of methamphetamine in a spare tire. The drugs weighed 17.5 pounds.
Two California men were jailed in Seward County. Each of the men were charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
