LINCOLN, Neb. — Law enforcement in southeastern Nebraska say a traffic stop on Interstate 80 led to the discovery of 118 fraudulent credit cards.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner tells the Lincoln Journal Star (http://bit.ly/2sbWBSg ) that a sport utility vehicle driven by a 49-year-old Hollywood, Florida, was stopped around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday on the interstate in Lincoln on suspicion of speeding.

Deputies say they searched the SUV and found the credit cards inside a bag hidden in the wheel well.

The driver and a 31-year-old passenger from Grand Island were arrested on suspicion of criminal possession of a financial transaction device.

Wagner said the investigation is ongoing and deputies are trying to determine to whom the card accounts belong.
