Police beat

Nebraska State Patrol troopers found multiple controlled substances and arrested a Colorado man during a traffic stop Wednesday night on Interstate 80 near Hershey.

About 10:10 p.m., the patrol says, a trooper saw an eastbound Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup with a missing taillight failing to maintain its lane near mile marker 166 on I-80. During the traffic stop, the trooper saw drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle found 82 doses of LSD, 30 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, less than an ounce of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

The driver, a 19-year-old man from Littleton, Colorado, was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana — less than one ounce, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was lodged in Lincoln County Jail.

A female passenger was cited for minor in possession of alcohol and open container.
