The Nebraska State Patrol says a Florida man has been arrested and 243 pounds of pot has been seized in north Lincoln. 

The patrol says a pickup was pulled over for a traffic stop just after 7 a.m. Friday near the Interstate 80 intersection with the Interstate 180 spur into downtown Lincoln. 

A state trooper was given permission to search the truck, which led to the discovery of 10 bales inside a cardboard box in the pickup bed. 

The driver is from Palm Bay, Fla. He's jailed on suspicion of possession with intent to sell.
