The Nebraska State Patrol says troopers arrest two people after locating over six pounds of suspected cocaine mixed with fentanyl during a traffic stop in Lincoln County.
Earlier this week, a trooper stopped a vehicle for a license plate violation on Interstate 80, at mile marker 162, near Hershey.
The patrol says during the traffic stop, the trooper became suspicious of criminal activity.
The N-S-P says a search of the vehicle revealed approximately 6.6 pounds of a suspected cocaine/fentanyl mixture.
The substance was located in a bag in the cargo area.
The driver, 25-year old Alfonso Carillo of Tolleson, Arizona, and a passenger, 43-year old Celso Carillo, of Beryl, Utah, were arrested for possession of an exceptionally hazardous drug, possession of cocaine, and possession with intent to deliver.
They were taken to the Lincoln County jail.
