The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says $90,000 worth of marijuana was seized Wednesday after deputies pulled over a car on I-80 near Lincoln.

It's the second time this week, and it happened at about the same time and place as Tuesday's bust.  This time, Sheriff Wagner says 37-year-old Joseph Beard of Owens Cross, Alabama and 34-year-old Benjamin Smart of Orlando, Florida were arrested by deputies following a traffic stop at 11:20pm Wednesday.

It happened near mile marker 397 on I-80 near Lincoln.  Sheriff Wagner says both men were lodged in jail for Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver.

On Tuesday, the sheriff's deputies pulled over a California couple for speeding.  The sheriff's office says they recovered nearly $25,000 worth of medical marijuana.
