A Nebraska State Patrol trooper had stopped the vehicle for failure to signal. A State Patrol Drug Dog was dispatched to the scene and indicated the presence of drugs in the vehicle. The State Patrol report says a search of the vehicle revealed about 16 pounds of suspected Marijuana and two pounds of suspected Hashish located in plastic totes on top of the vehicle. Also located in the vehicle was less than an ounce of Marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
