The Nebraska State Patrol arrested a Michigan pair with drugs and a gun during a Sunday night traffic stop that started when a trooper clocked a car going 101 mph on Interstate 80 near Sutherland.

Patrol spokesman Cody Thomas said it happened at about 9:40 p.m.

After stopping the eastbound Kia Optima, the trooper smelled marijuana coming from inside. A search turned up 970 pills of suspected ecstasy, 4 pounds of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a loaded handgun, Thomas said.
