Troopers find close to 1,000 THC vape cartridges in I-80 stop for speeding
Nebraska State Patrol troopers arrested an Iowa man Monday after finding close to 1,000 THC vape cartridges during a traffic stop on Interstate 80 near North Platte.
John Norris, 22, of Johnston, Iowa, was taken to jail on suspicion of possession of THC/hash oil with intent to deliver and no drug tax stamp after the stop at about 10:50 a.m. Monday.
Patrol spokesman Cody Thomas said a trooper stopped Norris, heading east in a Ford Escape, for speeding, “became aware of drug activity and conducted a search of the vehicle.”
The search revealed 947 THC vape cartridges in vacuum-sealed bags hidden inside a box in the cargo area.
Norris’ passenger was cited and released for possession of marijuana less than 1 ounce.
