Two men from Minnesota have been taken to the Hamilton County jail and troopers have seized over 30 pounds of marijuana after a traffic stop on Interstate 80 Monday.

Dana Noel, 58, of Minneapolis, Minn., and Jordan Noel, 29, of Burnsville, Minn., were taken to jail Monday afternoon, each facing a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. They remained in jail Tuesday.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper pulled over a car being driven by Dana Noel just before 11:30 a.m. Monday near the Henderson exit on I-80 for failing to signal.

The patrol says a NSP dog alerted the trooper to the odor of drugs coming from the vehicle. Just over 33 pounds of marijuana was seized from the trunk of the car.
