A stop on Interstate-70 leads to drug charges for a couple from Kentucky.

According to Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan around 1:30am Thursday, a deputy on patrol stopped a driver just west of the Niles Road exit on I-70 for failure to maintain a lane.

The deputy noticed drug paraphernalia in the 2010 Nissan Cube and a search of the vehicle then revealed 7 1/2-pounds of marijuana packaged up for sale. The driver, 39-year-old Angela Browning of Ashland, KY is now facing charges that could include possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
