A police dog helped Nebraska state troopers find $1 million worth of marijuana in a big rig that had made an improper lane change, officials said.

A trooper saw the big rig, which had a lighting defect, make an improper lane change on I-80 near Kearney at around 8:20 a.m. Wednesday, the Nebraska State Patrol said in a release.

A state patrol dog detected the odor of a controlled substance coming from the semi-trailer during the traffic stop, the release said. Troopers found 284 pounds of raw marijuana, 2.5 pounds of marijuana wax and 3.6 pounds of marijuana-infused vape tubes during a search.

The State Patrol estimated the marijuana’s street value to be over $1 million.
