SEWARD, Neb. — A 55-year-old man from Washington was caught on Interstate 80 in Nebraska with 83 pounds of pot stashed away in his car, Nebraska State Patrol said Sunday.

According to the state patrol, a trooper pulled Kris Robertson of Camas, Wash., over for speeding eastbound outside of Seward.

A police dog noticed the smell of drugs coming from the car, troopers said, and a vehicle search produced 83.3 pounds of marijuana in two duffel bags and several loose packages in the trunk of the man’s 2012 Buick.

Robertson was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. He is being held in Seward County Jail.

    If he can get the speeding ticket thrown out they might have to forego the possession case as well since that evidence came from a traffic stop.

    The last thing I'd be doing is with 83# of Dank is speeding across Nebraska. Surely now unfortunately he will learn the true meaning of "Corn Husker"

    He was running on high adrenaline and got caught speeding. This is a common mistake of Transporters. Cruise control is an essential tool while Riding Dirty… HAHAHAHAHAHA!
