Corning Man Sentenced In Nebraska After Authorities Seized 62 Pounds Of Pot

YORK, Neb. (AP) – A Tehama County 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, of Corning was sentenced last week to three years of probation and 90 days in jail, divided into three increments of 30 days. The two final increments can be waived by the court. He’d pleaded no contest to attempted possession of controlled substances for sale. Prosecutors dropped two related charges in exchange for Moran’s plea. Authorities say a deputy stopped a pickup truck for speeding on Interstate 80 last Aug. 8 in York County. A court document says the York County deputy grew suspicious, which led to a search of the truck. Sixty-two pounds of pot was found inside a hidden compartment under the pickup bed.
