LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - State troopers seized 131 pounds of marijuana and nearly 24 pounds of heroin after separate traffic stops along Interstate 80 in Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the pot was found Saturday after a trooper stopped a sport utility vehicle just east of Grand Island. The patrol says a drug dog alerted troopers to the odor of drugs, and the pot later was found in five packages inside a bag in the cargo area.

The patrol says the heroin was found in Sunday afternoon after a trooper pulled over a vehicle about a mile east of the Waverly exit. The patrol says the trooper was given permission to search the vehicle. The patrol says the heroin was found in nine packages secreted in two false compartments.

Both drivers were arrested.
