AURORA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say Nebraska state troopers arrested two drivers after finding marijuana in their vehicles after traffic stops in Hamilton County.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper stopped a sport utility vehicle around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday for speeding on Nebraska Highway 14 in Aurora. A search turned up 325 pounds (148 kilograms) of pot and more than a pound of marijuana edibles.

A few minutes later a trooper pulled over a vehicle on Interstate 80 near Giltner for failing to signal. A patrol K-9 alerted troopers to the presence of drugs, and a search of the vehicle turned up 55 pounds (25 kilograms) of pot.
