Omaha law enforcement seize drugs in 2 separate stops
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Sheriff’s deputies in eastern Nebraska say they have seized methamphetamine, opioids and marijuana in two separate traffic stops along Interstate 80 in Omaha.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says the first stop around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday led to a search of the stopped car that turned up three pounds of meth and three packages of prescription fentanyl. Two people in the car were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to deliver and having no drug tax stamp.
Early Thursday morning, a deputy stopped another car, which was found to contain two suitcases holding 20 vacuum sealed bags of marijuana totaling 22 pounds. Deputies say they also found 20 grams of suspected meth and 62 grams of hash. That driver, too, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to deliver and having no drug tax stamp.
