LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Nevada man caught hauling 136 pounds of pot through Nebraska in early 2011 has been sentenced to prison.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports Michael Doyle, of Reno, Nev., was sentenced Tuesday to two to four years in prison. A Lancaster County judge dismissed his pleas for probation.

A Nebraska state trooper confiscated the drugs during a March 2011 traffic stop on Interstate 80 in Lincoln. Two pounds of hashish and a gun also were found in the truck.

Doyle later pleaded no contest to possession of more than a pound of marijuana and intent to deliver hashish.
