NSP seize $1.5 million worth of drugs during traffic stop

Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol have arrested two men and seized 526 pounds of high-grade marijuana following a traffic stop on Interstate 80.

The stop occurred just after 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, when a trooper observed an eastbound truck failing to signal and having improper lighting near mile marker 370.

During the stop, an NSP K9 detected the odor of a controlled substance coming from the rear of the truck.

Troopers then conducted a search of the vehicle and discovered 17 boxes of high-grade marijuana with a total weight of 526.2 pounds.

The drugs have an estimated street value of $1.5 million.

NSP arrested Robert P. Rahon, 27, of Sacramento, California, and Felice M. Giorgetti, 38, of Huntington Beach, California, for Possession With Intent to Deliver and No Drug Tax Stamp.
