Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol have arrested a California man and seized a large cache of marijuana and THC vape cartridges during a traffic stop near Lexington.

At approximately 5:10 p.m. Friday, a trooper clocked an Infinity QX60 traveling eastbound at 98 miles per hour on Interstate 80 near Lexington.

During the traffic stop, the trooper became suspicious of criminal activity, and a  search of the vehicle revealed 155 pounds of marijuana and 439 THC vape cartridges. The combination carries an estimated street value of more than $500,000.

The driver, Michael Banks, 27, of San Bernardino, California, was arrested for possession of marijuana – more than one pound, possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver, and no drug tax stamp.

Banks was lodged in Dawson County Jail.
