206 pounds of marijuana. That's what a Nebraska State Patrol trooper seized yesterday in a traffic stop near Overton.

Two St. Paul Minnesota residents were arrested on charges of possession with intent to deliver after being stopped in their eastbound Chrysler minivan around 9:30 am for failure to maintain a lane.

A Dawson County Sheriff's canine indicated the odor of drugs from the vehicle. A search found the drugs in vacuum sealed bags contained within six trash bags in the cargo area.

The couple is being held at the Dawson County Jail.
