Two New Jersey Men Arrested on I-70

Two New Jersey men have been booked into the Saline County Jail after they were found in possession of a large amount of marijuana.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, a deputy stopped a 2021 Toyota Camry on I-70 at mile post 248 for driving in the passing lane when no other cars were around.

During the stop, the deputy noticed some drug paraphernalia and suspected marijuana in the vehicle. A search was conducted, and 49 individual one-pound packs of marijuana were discovered.

Andriy Khlopan, a 23-year-old from Perth Amboy, New Jersey, and Yulian Bilak, a 21-year-old from South River, NJ, were arrested.

They are both charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, no tax stamp on the marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
