30 lbs. of Pot Wrapped in Birthday Paper Lands Calif. Man In Jail

Posted: Updated:

Lincoln- Disguised in birthday wrapping paper, nearly 30 lbs. of marijuana was seized after a weekend traffic stop on Interstate 80 in Cass County.

Just after noon on Saturday a trooper stopped an eastbound 2012 Toyota Camry for following to close near the Greenwood exit on Interstate 80.

A Nebraska State Patrol canine indicated the odor of drugs coming from the vehicle. A search of the car led to the seizure of nearly 30 pounds of marijuana.

The marijuana was contained in 13 individual packages and hidden in a box wrapped in birthday paper in the trunk of the vehicle.

The sole occupant of the vehicle was a 52-year-old California man, Johnny C. Hatchett of West Sacramento.

Hatchett was lodged in the Cass County Jail on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
