YORK, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say two men were arrested after state troopers found marijuana in their minivan after a traffic stop along Interstate 80 in eastern Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper stopped the minivan around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday for failing to signal near York. The trooper reported seeing a vacuum-sealed bag of pot inside the vehicle.

A subsequent search turned up 149 pounds (68 kilograms) of pot with a street value estimated at $447,000.

The two men were arrested on suspicion of possession for sale and lacking a drug tax stamp. Court records don’t show they’ve been formally charged yet.
