LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska authorities have arrested two Oregon men who they say had marijuana and nearly $48,000 in their car.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/1qaUZTx ) the 20- and 25-year-old men were arrested last weekend after a traffic stop.
Authorities say they found 20 grams of marijuana and $48,000 in cash in the car. They say the men delivered marijuana to Wisconsin and were taking the money back to Oregon.
A Lancaster County deputy says one of the men admitted to having marijuana in the vehicle.
The men were taken to jail on suspicion of possessing drug money. It's unclear if they've been charged.
