More than 12 lbs. of marijuana was seized and two people arrested after a weekend traffic stop on Interstate 80 just west of the North Platte interchange.
Just before 9:00 a.m., on Saturday, October 12, a trooper stopped an eastbound 2012 Chevy impala for speeding on I-80, three miles west of the North Platte interchange. An NSP K-9 indicated the odor of drugs coming from the vehicle. A search of the car led to the seizure of 12.4 lbs. of marijuana. The marijuana was located in a duffle bag in the trunk of the vehicle.
The driver of the vehicle, David J. Evans, 29, Newcastle, Calif., and a passenger in the vehicle Felicia P. MacDowell, 23, Converse, Texas, were both lodged in Lincoln County Detention Center, each on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
