Authorities say two Pennsylvania men have been arrested and 127 pounds of marijuana has been seized along Interstate 80 in the Nebraska Panhandle.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the two were taken into custody just off the Sidney exit on Thursday evening.

The patrol says a trooper reported smelling marijuana when he was checking on a sport utility vehicle that had stopped. The patrol says the pot, a pound of hashish and a small amount of cocaine were found during a search of the SUV.

Troopers arrested 23-year-old Kenneth Turner, of Pittsburgh, Pa., and his passenger, 30-year-old Gabriel Nowak, of Finleyville, Pa.

Both men remained in Cheyenne County Jail on Friday. Online court records don't list the names of their attorneys.
