CULBERTSON, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a driver was arrested after nearly 241 pounds of marijuana was found in his vehicle in southwest Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol said in a news release Thursday that a trooper pulled over the vehicle a little before 6:30 p.m. Wednesday for improper passing on U.S. Highway 6 just west of Culbertson. The patrol says a Red Willow County sheriff’s dog taken to the scene alerted officers to the odor of drugs, and a subsequent vehicle search turned up the pot inside two duffel bags.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of possession for sale. Online court records don’t show that he’s been formally charged yet. His passenger was released.
