OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say 45 pounds of marijuana has been seized and a minivan driver has been arrested along Interstate 80 in Omaha.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy saw the eastbound minivan drive onto the roadway shoulder without signaling around 2:15 a.m. Friday. The deputy later called for a department drug dog, which the Sheriff’s Office says eventually alerted deputies to the odor of drugs.

The Sheriff’s Office says the pot was found in 40 sealed bags placed inside two duffel bags. More than $3,600 in cash also was seized.

The driver told deputies he was driving from Utah to Iowa, He was arrested on suspicion of possession for sale and failure to affix a drug tax stamp. Online court records don’t show whether he’s been formally charged.
