LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A California couple has been arrested after authorities found more than 10 pounds of methamphetamine in their vehicle during a traffic stop near Lincoln.

According to court records unsealed Tuesday, a 45-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman were arrested Sunday afternoon. The Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1FjmQoK ) reports the two were pulled over by Nebraska State Patrol troopers for a routine traffic stop.

Christopher Apley, an investigator with the Drug Enforcement Administration, said a patrol officer grew suspicious and asked for permission to search the vehicle. Authorities found eight bundles of methamphetamine, weighing just over 10 pounds total, under the back seat.

According to Apley, authorities believe the methamphetamine was being transported from San Jose, California, to Omaha.

The two suspects face charges including passion with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.
