Three people are in custody after a cocaine bust on I-80.

A state trooper says he saw two vehicles traveling together near the Lincoln Airport Monday morning. One of the vehicles, a Chevy Malibu, was stopped for an improper lane change. The second vehicle continued on.

The driver refused to allow a search, so an NSP canine was called in.
Prior to the arrival of the K-9, the female driver advised the trooper she had marijuana in the vehicle. A probable cause search was then conducted.

Less than an ounce of marijuana and 8 ounces of crack cocaine were found in a bag of diapers in the trunk of the vehicle. The crack cocaine has a street value of $30,000.

The second vehicle, a 1998 Lincoln Navigator was located at a truck stop at the Gretna Interchange on Interstate 80 with two individuals inside.

The driver of the Chevy Malibu, 31-year-old Sophia Morris of Des Moines, Iowa was lodged in the Lancaster County Jail on charges of Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Deliver, Conspiracy to Deliver Cocaine and Possession of Marijuana less than an ounce.
