Nebraska State Patrol troopers say they found 368 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop on Interstate 80 west of Lincoln on Saturday.

At about 11:50 a.m. Saturday, a trooper stopped a Dodge Ram heading east near the Goehner exit for failing to stay in its lane. During the stop, the trooper smelled marijuana coming from the pickup, patrol spokesman Cody Thomas said.

He said a search turned up 16 large trash bags containing marijuana in the cargo area.

Troopers arrested the driver, 37-year-old Bradley Wooten, of Carmel, Indiana, on suspicion of possession of more than a pound of marijuana, possession with intent to deliver and no drug tax stamp.
