While many were celebrating the international stoner holiday on Saturday, an Indiana man was jailed in Nebraska after reportedly being caught with 368 pounds of cannabis in his vehicle.

Thirty-seven-year-old Bradley Wooten of Carmel, Indiana was traveling east on Interstate 80 shortly before noon on April 20 when a Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) trooper pulled him over for a traffic stop near Goehner.

The trooper had observed Wooten’s Dodge Ram failing to stay in its lane.

During the traffic stop, the trooper detected the scent of cannabis emanating from inside the pickup and began conducting a search.

Upon investigation of the vehicle, the trooper discovered 16 large black trash bags filled with marijuana in the truck’s cargo area.

According to an NSP spokesperson, Cody Thomas, the value of the marijuana was estimated to be around $1.1 million, reports the North Platte Bulletin.

The trooper arrested Wooten on charges of marijuana possession of more than one pound, intent to deliver, and no drug tax stamp.

Wooten was booked in the Seward County Jail.
