BISMARCK - Two men were arrested in the Bismarck area Wednesday evening after a North Dakota Highway Patrol trooper stopped their red Mazda sedan on Interstate 94 for a traffic violation. A search of their vehicle yielded 1.75 pounds of marijuana and $1,400 cash.

The driver, Abdullahi Adan, 26, of St. Cloud, Minn., and his passenger, Semereab Tesfaye, 25, of Fargo were charged with Class A felonies and were booked into the Burleigh County Detention Center, according to a release from the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The drugs were discovered with the help of a Bismarck Police Department K-9 unit, the patrol said.
