Californians held in Nebraska marijuana case

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Authorities say a car stopped for speeding on Interstate 80 in north Lincoln contained more than 44 pounds of marijuana.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the eastbound car was spotted by a patrol aircraft around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. A trooper pulled over the car and soon learned that the driver was wanted on a California warrant.

The patrol says a subsequent search of the car turned up the pot inside three duffel bags.

The driver, 23-year-old David Azaria, of Los Angeles, and his passenger, 21-year-old Christophe Clasquin, of Beverly Hills, Calif., were arrested. Lancaster County jail records said both men remained in custody on Wednesday. Online court records don’t yet list the case.
