Pot Bust Uncovers Mobile Marijuana Grow

A 911 call leads Nebraska State Troopers to stop an erratic driver on I-80 in Hamilton County.

Troopers arrested a Minnesota man for driving under the influence of drugs and the discovery of a mobile marijuana grow.

Shortly after 8:30 a.m., on Wednesday, July 29, 2009, a trooper with the Nebraska State Patrol Troop C Headquarters- Grand Island responded to a citizen call of a possible drunk driver in a Ford Taurus eastbound on Interstate 80.

The trooper stopped a vehicle matching the description near the Henderson Interchange mm 341, in Hamilton County, Nebraska.

A search led to the seizure of 7 canning jars containing 18 separate packages of medicinal marijuana purchased in California.

In the trunk of the vehicle, the trooper located an active marijuana grow, containing 13 marijuana plants.

The plants were inside two rubber totes with a working fan, digital thermometer and fluorescent lights.

The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, David Herman, 56, of Glenville, Minnesota, was lodged in the Hamilton County Jail on charges of Driving under the Influence of Drugs, Manufacturing Marijuana, and Possession of Marijuana over an ounce-less than a pound.
