Two Sioux Falls residents are in custody on drug charges after they were stopped Tuesday morning, October 1, on US Highway 83 in north-central Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper stopped a northbound 2006 Dodge Charger for no license plate on the highway, 20 miles south of Valentine, and during the stop the trooper detected the smell of marijuana.

A "probable cause" search led to the seizure of 11 pounds of  pot in duffel bags in the trunk of the car.

The Patrol says the driver, Reginald Willet, and a passenger, Cassandra Asfeha, both 24 years old and both from Sioux Falls, are being held in the Cherry County Jail in Valentine on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
