 State troopers have arrested a driver and seized 58 pounds of marijuana after an Interstate 80 traffic stop in Hamilton County.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper pulled over a speeding sport utility vehicle just after 2 p.m. Tuesday about a mile east of the Giltner exit. 

A patrol dog taken to the scene alerted troopers to the odor of drugs coming from the SUV. 

A vehicle search turned up three duffel bags that contained the pot.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to deliver. 

On Wednesday online court records didn’t show that he’s been formally charged
