KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) -- A 29-year-old Oregon man has been arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale.

A news release from the Nebraska State Patrol says Patrick Ondrozeck, of Bend, Ore., was stopped for speeding on Saturday near the Kearney interchange of Interstate 80 in south-central Nebraska.

The trooper says a state patrol dog indicated there were drugs in the car, so it was searched. Authorities say a total of 40 pounds of marijuana was found in luggage in the trunk and rear seat.

Online jail records say Ondrozeck wasn't in custody on Monday. A public phone listing for Ondrozeck could not be found. Online court records don't list the case yet.
