The sheriff’s office says both stops occurred within several hours of each other on Interstate 80.
In the first incident Tuesday night, a driver was stopped on I-80 near 96th Street for a traffic violation. A sheriff’s deputy smelled marijuana and found the drug bundled in three bags in the trunk.
A 51-year-old California man was arrested in that stop.
Then early Wednesday, a police dog detected the odor of drugs coming from a vehicle another deputy had stopped on I-80. A search found the methamphetamine in the vehicle.
A 54-year-old woman and her 33-year-old passenger were arrested. Both are from New Hampshire.
