LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – A Nebraska judge has sentenced a California
man to prison for a stash of marijuana and heroin found in a rental
truck during a traffic stop on Interstate 80.
Luis Vargas Trujillo, of Dinuba, Calif., was one of three men arrested in October near the Utica exit.
Trujillo pleaded no contest to a drug charge. The Lincoln Journal Star says a Seward County judge sentenced him on Monday to 20 months to five years in prison. A Nebraska State Patrol trooper stopped Trujillo for failing to signal a lane change. The patrol say a search turned up 200 pounds of pot and 50 grams of heroin inside some mattresses.
The other men were previously sentenced to prison.
