SUTHERLAND, Neb. — Nebraska authorities say a car crash that involved a deer has led to a marijuana bust.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper responded to a report Saturday night about a crash on Interstate 80 near Sutherland. The accident involved a deer.

The trooper reported a strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle. The trooper searched the car and found no drugs. But two duffel bags with 20 pounds of marijuana were located about 10 feet away near a tree.

Two men were in the car. The driver, 33-year-old Justin D. Bigon, and 32-year-old James E. Brisco, both of Santa Rosa, Calif., were arrested. They face a charge of marijuana possession with intent to deliver. Court records do not list attorneys for them.
