Gift-wrapped pot seized on I-80Tell North Platte what you think
 

Nearly 30 pounds of marijuana covered in birthday wrapping was seized and a California man jailed during a weekend traffic stop on Interstate 80.

Just after noon on Saturday, a trooper stopped an eastbound 2012 Toyota Camry for following to close near the Greenwood exit on I-80 between Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said.

An NSP dog indicated the odor of drugs coming from the vehicle, and a search of the car led to the seizure of 29.5 pounds of marijuana.

The marijuana was contained in 13 individual packages, inside a box wrapped in birthday paper in the trunk, Collins said.

The driver and lone occupant of the vehicle, Johnny C. Hatchett, 52, of West Sacramento, Calif., was lodged in the Cass County Jail on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
