LINCOLN, Neb. — It’s not every day that an ambulance gets stopped for speeding and following too closely on Interstate 80. Or that law enforcement finds a cache of illegal drugs inside.
But that’s just what Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner said happened Wednesday at noon in the traffic stop near Lincoln’s airport exit.
He said 35-year-old Levi Weintraub of Kalamazoo, Michigan, was stopped driving a surplus ambulance and arrested when they found cocaine, LSD, ecstasy, ketamine and mushrooms inside after a drug dog alerted to drugs inside.
Prosecutors charged him Thursday with four counts of possession of a controlled substance.
