Two out of state men were driving through Nevada Sunday when they were pulled over and ticketed for possession of roughly 200 pounds of cannabis, according to Elko Daily Free Press.

Alan Pina, 32, and Orlando Torres, 34, were arrested headed east on Interstate 80. The state trooper smelled marijuana as he approached the car, giving him probable cause to do a search.


Both men were charged with possession, two counts of selling a controlled substance and trafficking. The driver, Pina, was also issued a speeding ticket and obstruction of the window. They were each granted bail of about $61,000.

Highway patrol confiscated the illegal substance, along with a fat stack of cash.
