EVANSTON (AP) -- Authorities say a traffic stop in southwest Wyoming has led to the seizure of 115 pounds of marijuana worth more than $692,000. The Wyoming Highway Patrol says a trooper pulled over a rental car on eastbound Interstate 80 Sunday night outside Evanston on a speeding violation. A patrol dog detected drugs, and a search revealed five packages of marijuana. Authorities also seized more than $3,000 in cash. The highway patrol said Tuesday that the 35-year-old driver Shaval Green of Margate, Fla., and his 24-year-old passenger, Willie Lofton, of Cithonia, Ga., are in custody. They face felony charges of possession of a controlled substance in plant form, possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, and conspiracy to deliver controlled substance.
