NEW CASTLE, Ind. (AP) — Police have seized about 400 pounds (181 kilograms) of marijuana following a traffic stop on a central Indiana freeway.

A van was stopped about 1:35 p.m. Wednesday on Interstate 70 near New Castle for following another vehicle too closely, The (Muncie) Star Press reported Thursday.

Inside were 16 cardboard boxes with vacuum-sealed packages of pot.

Two men from Baltimore and Glen Burnie, Maryland, were arrested and face charges of dealing marijuana.
