Two men have been arrested and 40 pounds of marijuana seized during a weekend traffic stop by a state trooper near Grand Island.
The Nebraska State Patrol reports that 24-year-old Jose Manuel Figueroa of Selma, CA and a passenger in the vehicle, 20-year-old Martinez Cruz Garcia of Mexico, have been charged with attempting to sell marijuana. They have been jailed in Hamilton County.
The patrol says the trooper stopped a SUV for failure to signal at the Giltner Exit on I-80. After getting permission to search the vehicle, a trooper found 10-pound packages of marijuana in four duffle bags in the cargo area of the SUV.
