Nebraska State Troopers have made another big marijuana bust in western Nebraska.
 
Troopers stopped a eastbound vehicle on Highway 6 near Culbertson in Hitchcock County around 6:30 Wednesday night. A Red Willow County Sheriff's K9 smelled the odor of drugs inside the vehicle. A search uncovered 240.5 pounds of marijuana in two large duffel bags in the cargo area of the vehicle.
 
Troopers arrested 32 year old Christopher Carrillo of Phoenix, Arizona for possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. A female passenger was released.
