KSAL StaffNovember 29, 2017

A man and woman from Colorado are in jail after authorities confiscated over 32-pounds of marijuana found in their SUV Tuesday night.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that a deputy pulled over a 2012 Dodge Durango near the Hedville exit on Interstate-70 around 11:15pm for a left lane violation.

The officer noticed the overwhelming odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle and a search revealed 32.2 pounds of pot packaged for sale.

Deputies arrested 22-year-old Ryan Cullen of Aurora and 43-year-old Maritza Ortega of Centennial on charges that could include possession with intent to distribute.

Sheriff Soldan says the estimated street value of the marijuana is $143,000.
