KEARNEY, Neb. — Authorities have seized 60 pounds of marijuana following a traffic stop on Interstate 80 in Buffalo County.

The Nebraska State Patrol said a trooper stopped a vehicle Friday as it traveled east near the Kearney exit. The trooper says the car was following too close.

A service dog indicated the odor of drugs. A search led to the seizure of marijuana found in the trunk.

The driver, 31-year-old David H. Esty III, of Surry, Maine, was arrested and taken to the Buffalo County Jail. He faces a charge of possession with intent to deliver.

Court records do not list an attorney.
