State troopers arrested two people Wednesday after finding 60 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop near the Darr exit on I-80.
At approximately 2:25 p.m., a trooper saw a Ford Fusion fail to signal a turn after it exited I-80, Nebraska State Patrol spokesman Cody Thomas said. During the stop, an NSP K9 drug detection dog indicated the presence of a controlled substance inside the vehicle.
A search turned up 60 pounds of marijuana in bags in the trunk, Thomas said.
The driver, Christopher Ryan-Goetze, 30, and passenger, Hannah Umpstead, 24, both of Denver, were charged with possession of more than a pound of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute, and not having a drug tax stamp.
Both of them were placed in the Dawson County jail, Thomas said.
