An Oregon man has been given prison time for transporting more than 100
pounds of marijuana across Nebraska.
Raul Verdugo Jr., 45, Ashland, Ore., was sentenced Tuesday to 20 months to three years in prison.
Nebraska State Patrol says Verdugo was stopped in January 2012 on
Interstate 80 in Seward County for speeding. A drug patrol dog indicated
the smell of drugs in his vehicle, and a search turned up the
Verdugo later pleaded no contest to possession of more than 1 pound of marijuana and no drug tax stamp.
