A Nebraska State Patrol trooper found 13 pounds of cocaine and three pounds of heroin and arrested two men Sunday following a traffic stop on Interstate 76 just north of the Colorado border, the agency reported Monday. At 3:43 p.m. (MST), the trooper pulled over an eastbound Nissan Sentra for speeding at mile marker 2, spokesman Cody Thomas said in a news release. "During the traffic stop, the trooper detected criminal activity and conducted a search of the vehicle," Thomas said. The cocaine and heroin were found under the manufactured floor beneath the front seats of the car.
