GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) -- A 75-year-old Arizona man has been arrested on a drug charge after a traffic stop on Interstate 80 in south-central Nebraska.
 
A news release from the Nebraska State Patrol says William Reid, of Mesa, Ariz., was arrested on Friday night near Alda in Hall County.
 
The patrol says a trooper pulled over Reid for speeding. The patrol says a dog taken to the scene indicated there was marijuana in the rear of the car and that a subsequent search uncovered 99 pounds of baled marijuana in the trunk.
 
Reid was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to deliver. He remains in custody. Online court records don't list his attorney's name.
