Nebraska State Patrol troopers arrested two men and seized 526 pounds of high-grade marijuana during a traffic stop in western Nebraska.
NSP reports troopers pulled over an eastbound truck late Wednesday morning for failing to signal and having improper lighting near mile marker 370. A drug dog detected the odor of marijuana from the rear of the truck.
A search of the truck uncovered 17 boxes of high-grade marijuana. It weighed 526.2 pounds. NSP estimates the street value at $1.5 million.
27-year-old Robert Rahon of Sacramento, CA and 38-year-old Felice Giorgetti of Huntington Beach, CA have been charged with possessing drugs with the intent to sell them and for not having a drug tax stamp. Both have been jailed in Seward County.
