YORK, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska troopers say they have arrested an Arizona man after finding more than 2,300 pounds of marijuana in the back of a rental truck he was driving.
The Nebraska State Patrol said Monday that a trooper stopped the truck on Sunday morning for failing to signal near the Bradshaw Interchange on Interstate 80, and was given consent to search it.
The patrol says officers discovered 101 bundles of marijuana that weighed nearly 2,400 pounds. The patrol released a picture showing stacks and stacks of the bundles in the truck's back storage area.
The driver, James C. Valimont of Glendale, Ariz., is being held in the York County Jail. He has been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
