A 26-year-old Vermont man caught hauling more than 100 pounds of marijuana has been given Nebraska prison time.

Online court records say Nathaniel Miller was given four to six years at his sentencing Thursday in Lancaster County District Court. He'd pleaded no contest on March 26 to attempted possession of a firearm while possessing illicit drugs. Prosecutors had lowered the charge in return for Miller's plea.

The Nebraska State Patrol says Miller, of Jericho, Vt., was driving a pickup east on Interstate 80 near Lincoln when he was pulled over on Sept. 3 last year. The patrol says more than 104 pounds of pot was found in packages hidden under the truck bed liner. The patrol says a disassembled gun was found in the truck's camper.
