Two men were arrested in a traffic stop on I-80 after troopers pulled their vehicle over for failing to signal and then subsequently found 526 pounds of high-grade marijuana in the car. 

According to a release, 27-year-old Robert Rahon and 38-year-old Felice Giorgetti had their car searched during the stop after a State Patrol K9 detected the odor of a controlled substance. The men, both from California, were booked in the Seward County Jail for possession with intent to deliver and no drug stamp. 

The marijuana has an estimated street value of $1.5 million.
