LINCOLN, Neb. -- A 68-year-old Boise, Idaho man has been arrested in Nebraska, accused of hauling more than 124 pounds of marijuana.

The Nebraska State Patrol says John Henman was taken into custody after a traffic stop Monday afternoon near the Lincoln Airport in eastern Nebraska.

The patrol says a trooper was given permission to search the pickup. The patrol says 63 packages of pot were found in a compartment under an external fuel tank in the pickup bed.

A Lancaster County jailer said Henman remained in custody on Tuesday. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
