A traffic stop on Interstate 80 in Lincoln Friday morning led to the seizure of 243 pounds of marijuana and the arrest of a Palm Bay, Florida man.

A Nebraska State Patrol trooper pulled over a pickup heading eastbound near the I-680 interchange just after 7 a.m. for failure to signal. The trooper was given consent to search the truck, which turned up 10 bales of marijuana in a cardboard box in the bed of the pickup.

The driver, 50-year-old Michael Catalano, was taken to Lancaster County Corrections on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
