LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska State Patrol says troopers have seized more than 200 pounds of marijuana in a traffic stop along Interstate 80 near Lincoln.

The patrol says a pickup was stopped Thursday afternoon on suspicion of speeding, and a search of the truck turned up 218 pounds of marijuana located under the bed cover. The estimated street value of the marijuana is $654,000. The 53-year-old driver, from Green Bay, Wisconsin, was arrested.

Two other people - a 31-year-old man from Green Bay and a 25-year-old woman from Owensboro, Kentucky - also were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to deliver. They were stopped in a separate vehicle but were believed to be traveling with the pickup.
