Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol have arrested two men and seized 50 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop on Interstate 80 near Kimball.

On Sunday afternoon a trooper observed an eastbound 2018 Ford EcoSport speeding near mile marker 18 on I-80. During the traffic stop, the trooper detected criminal activity and conducted a search of the vehicle.

During the search, troopers found 50 pounds of marijuana in heat-sealed bags concealed in luggage in the rear of the vehicle.

The driver, 34-year-old Jasmon Watson of Kansas City, Kansas, and 31-year-old Marzett Davis of Sacramento, California, were arrested for possession of marijuana – more than one pound, possession with intent to deliver, and no drug tax stamp. Both men were lodged in Kimball County Jail.
