douglas-county-sheriff(AP) — A woman traveling through eastern Nebraska has been accused of having more than 55 pounds of marijuana.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says 23-year-old Adriana Landeros was taken into custody on Monday following a traffic stop on Interstate 80.

Authorities say Landeros, who was headed to Chicago, consented for the department’s K-9 unit to search her vehicle. It turned up 57 pounds of marijuana. It was located in a suitcase in the hatch of the rented vehicle.

Landeros faces charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and no tax stamp. Court records do not list an attorney.
