HERSHEY, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska State Patrol says a traffic stop on Interstate 80 in western Nebraska has led to the seizure of nearly 36 pounds of marijuana.

In a news release issued Tuesday, the patrol said the stop occurred early Monday afternoon when a trooper stopped a car on suspicion of failing to signal as it exited near Hershey.

The trooper reported smelling marijuana and searched the car, leading to 35.7 pounds of marijuana, located in two large bags in the trunk.

The driver, 28-year-old man from Kenosha, Wisconsin, and a passenger, a 40-year-old woman from Sturtevant, Wisconsin, were both arrested and booking in the Lincoln County Jail on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
