EVANSTON, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Highway Patrol says a 55-year-old Florida man was arrested after a trooper seized more than 75 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop near Evanston.

Edelberto Herrera, of Miami, was pulled over for speeding on Interstate 80 on Tuesday evening, and a search of his car turned up the marijuana with an estimated street value of $450,000.

Herrera was arrested on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance.

A call to the Uinta County Jail to determine if he had hired an attorney went unanswered Wednesday night.
