California man gets jail, probation in Nebraska pot case

YORK, NE (AP) – A California man caught hauling marijuana through Nebraska has been given jail time and probation.

York County District Court records say 32-year-old Ruben Morales Moran was sentenced last week to three years of probation and 90 days in jail, divided into three increments of 30 days.

He’d pleaded no contest to attempted possession of controlled substances for sale.

Authorities say a deputy stopped a pickup truck for speeding on Interstate 80 last August in York County. 62 pounds of pot was found inside a hidden compartment under the pickup bed.
