MINDEN, Neb. — Authorities say a Colorado man was arrested in south-central Nebraska after troopers found 37 pounds of marijuana hidden inside an air compressor in the back of his minivan.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper stopped the minivan for a traffic violation just before 5 p.m. Wednesday near the Minden exit off Interstate 80 in Buffalo County. The patrol says the trooper was given permission to search the vehicle, and the pot was found inside 37 packages concealed in the air compressor.

The driver, who was traveling alone, was arrested. He was identified as 55-year-old Raymond Perez, of Log Lane Village, Colorado. Jail records say Perez remained in custody on Friday. Court records don't list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Perez's behalf.
