LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say 15 pounds of methamphetamine have been found in a car pulled over near Lincoln.

Two men in the car were arrested Sunday night alongside U.S. Highway 77 just off Interstate 80. They’re being held in Lancaster County Jail pending charges.

A deputy had pulled over the car and issued a warning to the driver about a traffic violation. A search dog taken to the scene alerted deputies to the drugs. Sheriff Terry Wagner says 15 1-pound packages of meth were found inside a hidden compartment in the car’s dashboard.
