Maryland Man Held In Nebraska Pot Case
WOOD RIVER, Neb. (AP) — A Maryland man was arrested on a marijuana-for-sale allegation after a traffic stop on Interstate 80 in south-central Nebraska.
A news release from the Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper pulled over an eastbound car a little after 11:03 p.m. Thursday near the Wood River interchange.
The patrol says the trooper smelled marijuana, and a search turned up nearly 33 pounds of pot in the trunk.
The driver was traveling alone. He was identified as Travis Bielaski, 36, of Catonsville, Md.
Jail records say Bielaski remained in custody on Friday. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney.
