LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The smell of marijuana led a deputy to find 2 pounds of meth and guns in a vehicle at a gas station, the Seward County Sheriff’s Office said.

On Monday, as a deputy was refueling his patrol vehicle, he smelled marijuana coming from another car.

This led the deputy to search the vehicle.  Inside, he found a small amount of marijuana, 2 pounds of meth and two handguns, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies arrested the vehicle’s three occupants, who are all from Nevada.

Tyrell Gill, 33; Mario Moore, 49; and Megan Shunick, 30; were all arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance and deadly weapon.

Gill and Moore were both convicted felons, according to the sheriff’s office.

All three were booked into the Seward County Detention Center.

The sheriff’s office said the investigation is ongoing with multiple law enforcement agencies.
