New Hampshire man caught hauling nearly 65 pounds of pot gets 2-4 years in Nebraska prison


LINCOLN, Nebraska — A 30-year-old New Hampshire man caught hauling marijuana through Nebraska has been given two to four years in prison.

Online court records say Ryan Quirion, of Nashua, New Hampshire, was sentenced on Tuesday in Lancaster County District Court in Lincoln. He'd pleaded guilty to possession for sale.

Records say a Nebraska state trooper stopped Quirion on Dec. 12, 2013, for a traffic violation on Interstate 80 near the Lincoln Airport exit. The trooper noticed Quirion driving erratically as he left the scene, so the trooper notified Lancaster County authorities.

A deputy who found Quirion parked at a grocery store had a drug dog taken to the scene, and the dog alerted to the presence of drugs in Quirion's vehicle. Nearly 65 pounds of pot was found in a hidden compartment.
