OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been arrested after drugs were seized from his vehicle along Interstate 80 in Omaha.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy made a traffic stop around 11 p.m. Thursday and soon became suspicious of the driver. A department dog was taken to the scene, and the dog alerted officers to the odor of drugs.

The Sheriff’s Office says 18 pounds of marijuana and about a pound of suspected hashish butter were found in the car’s trunk, along with drug paraphernalia.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs for sale and other crimes. Online court records don’t show Friday whether he’s been formally charged.
