A traffic stop on Interstate 80 in eastern Nebraska has led to the seizure of 30.5 lbs. of marijuana and the arrest of two men from Massachusetts.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper stopped an eastbound car near Milford Thursday afternoon on suspicion of following another vehicle too closely.

The patrol says the trooper searched the car after smelling an odor of marijuana coming from it, and found the drugs in the trunk.

The 42-year-old driver, from Westfield, Mass., and a 31-year-old passenger, from Springfield, Mass., were arrested and jailed in Seward County on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
