Police seize 11 pounds of pot in Neb. Sandhills

VALENTINE, Neb. (AP) — Two South Dakota residents are facing charges after being caught with 11 pounds of marijuana in north-central Nebraska.

Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins says a trooper found the marijuana Tuesday morning during a traffic stop near Valentine.

The trooper stopped a 2006 Dodge Charger on Highway 83 about 20 miles south of Valentine because it didn't have a front license plate. During the stop, the trooper smelled marijuana, so he searched the car.

Several duffel bags full of the drug were found in the trunk.

Both 24-year-old Reginald Willett and 24-year-old Cassandra Asfeha were arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana with the intent to deliver it. They are both from Sioux Falls, S.D.

Willett and Asfeha remained in custody Wednesday afternoon.
