LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say deputies have seized around 55 pounds of cocaine found in a truck along Interstate 80 after it was pulled over on the west side of Lincoln.

The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office says deputies stopped the truck around 5:30 p.m. Sunday for several traffic violations. The Sheriff’s Office says the driver consented to deployment of a drug-detecting dog, and it soon alerted deputies to the presence of drugs.

Chief Deputy Todd Duncan says the cocaine has an estimated street value of $750,000.

The driver, Gustavo Zamora, was arrested on suspicion of possession of cocaine for sale. Online court records don’t show that he’s been formally charged. The 56-year-old is from San Gabriel, California.
