Millions of dollars of marijuana are in police custody after a couple of traffic stops on I-80.
Lancaster County Sheriff’s deputies confiscate over a million dollars worth of marijuana and other drugs near Lincoln.
“Police K9 was dispatched around the vehicle and indicated the odor of narcotics,” Terry Wagner, Lancaster County Sheriff, told reporters at a news conference. “In the bed of this Toyota Tundra was located 328 pounds of vacuum-sealed marijuana, 2,480 pre-loaded THC-concentrate vapor pens.”
Sheriff Wagner says they also confiscated $10,000 in cash and arrested a 38 year old Wyoming man.
“Total street value of the narcotics is about $1.4 million,” Wagner said, “but a big seizure by the task force.”
This comes after Seward County deputies confiscated more than 340 pounds of marijuana valued at $1.5 million dollars in a traffic stop on I-80.
