Two Oregon men have been arrested in southeast Nebraska, accused of possessing nearly 39 pounds of marijuana for sale.
The Nebraska State Patrol says the men were headed east on Interstate 80 Sunday afternoon when their pickup was pulled over on the northwest side of Lincoln for a traffic violation.
he patrol says a drug dog taken to the scene alerted troopers to the odor of drugs. Troopers say they found sealed bags of pot in an external fuel tank sitting in the pickup bed.
The two men were identified as 43-year-old Gregory Miller, of Tualatin and 38-year-old Britt Bones of Eagle Point.
A Lancaster County jailer said Miller and Bones remained in custody on Tuesday. It's unclear whether they have attorneys. Online records don't yet list the cases.
