The truck driver, 46-year-old Felipe Genao-Minaya, and his passenger, 52-year-old Nelson Nunez were arrested at the scene for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Nebraska State Patrol Col. John Bolduc is extremely proud of the law enforcement.

“I’m especially proud of our troopers and our staff because these drugs, as we know, are contributing to the opioid crisis in our country, which is killing Americans every single day,” Bolduc said. “This work is saving lives. We can’t even extrapolate out the number of lives that this particular bust has impacted.”
