YORK — A traffic stop Sunday resulted in the discovery and seizure of about 100 pounds of marijuana, the York County Sheriff’s Office said.
Just before 6 p.m., a deputy pulled over a 2011 Volvo SUV for failing to signal a lane change on Interstate 80 just west of the York exit and smelled burnt marijuana, according to court records.
In an affidavit for the driver’s arrest, a York County sheriff’s deputy said a police service dog indicated the odor of drugs, too. In a search, he said he found a gun and noticed the floor’s carpet had been taken up. He used a gas-tank scope and saw multiple bags of suspected drugs.
The Volvo was towed to York, where members of the York/Seward County Interdiction Task Force searched it and found a false floor and nearly 100 pounds of marijuana hidden inside.
They arrested the driver, 28-year-old Nicholas Vance of Dade City, Florida, who was charged Monday with possession of a firearm while violating drug laws, possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession of more than a pound of marijuana, no drug tax stamp and carrying a concealed weapon.
