Case against man caught with 100 pounds of pot bound over to District Court

YORK – The felony case against a man caught with 100 pounds of high-grade marijuana in York County has been bound over to District Court.

Enrique Alcala Zavalza, 50, of Woodland, California, has been charged with delivery of a controlled substance, a Class 2A felony; possession of more than one pound of marijuana, a Class 4 felony; and having no drug tax stamp, a Class 4 felony.

The case began when a trooper with the Nebraska State Patrol was on regular patrol in York County on Interstate 80 when he saw a vehicle traveling far below the posted speed limit. The trooper alleges he saw the vehicle go onto the shoulder twice, as well as the inside shoulder off the passing lane. A traffic stop was initiated.

Zavalza was the driver.

Due to the strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle, a search of the vehicle was conducted. During that search, troopers allegedly found 100 bags of marijuana weighing 100 pounds.

Arraignment proceedings were scheduled for this week in York County District Court.
