Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) have arrested two people after an incident at the Wood River interchange of Interstate 80.

At approximately 7:40 p.m. Wednesday, troopers responded to a report of a fight at a truck stop at the Wood River interchange, at mile marker 300 on I-80. Upon arrival, troopers located the people believed to be involved in the incident. During the investigation, an NSP K9 detected the odor of a controlled substance coming from inside one subject’s vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle, troopers located suspected methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and a machete. A search of another vehicle involved in the incident led to the location of additional methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Troopers arrested Steve Williams, 42, of Pueblo, Colorado for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person. Troopers also arrested Jennifer Jones, 34, of Pueblo, Colorado for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were lodged in Hall County Jail.
