A traffic stop on Interstate 80 near the Lincoln Airport exit landed a Cedarburg, Wisconsin man in jail after a Nebraska State Patrol trooper found nearly 18 pounds of marijuana in his pickup.

The trooper stopped the eastbound truck for going 80 mph in a 65 mph zone just before 11 a.m. Wednesday. An NSP canine indicated the odor of drugs coming from the pickup. A search of the vehicle led to the seizure of 17.8 lbs. of marijuana located in three duffel bags in the rear passenger side of the cab.

Twenty-eight-year-old Nicholas Pacocha was taken into custody on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
