The State Patrol says it has intercepted about $20,000 worth of methamphetamine believed to be headed for distribution in south-central Nebraska.

A patrol news release says a trooper stopped a car for speeding eastbound on Interstate 80 a little before noon on Wednesday, about two miles west of Grand Island.

During a search of the car, about 1 1/2 pounds of meth was found in an air-bag compartment. The patrol says evidence in the car indicated the meth was headed for Grand Island.

Forty-four-year-old Daniel Gonzales of Albuquerque, N.M., was arrested on suspicion of possession for sale.

He remained in Hall County jail Thursday. Case records don't list the name of his lawyer.
