OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Deputies say a California man has been arrested after more than 80 pounds of marijuana was found in his car during a traffic stop.

Omaha television station KETV reports (https://bit.ly/2rtMlVk ) that a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy pulled over a car driven by the 37-year-old man around 10 p.m. Thursday on suspicion of failing to signal a lane change.

Deputies say they could see silver heat-sealed bags partially covered by a sleeping back in the car and smelled coffee, which they suspected to an attempt to mask the odor of drugs.

Officials say a police dog indicated illegal drugs in the car, and a subsequent search turned up 82 pounds of marijuana.

The driver was arrested.
