Troopers Make $50K Drug Bust on Turnpike
State troopers made an unexpected (and rather large) discovery during a routine traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike Wednesday.
It happened near milepost 134 in Lorain County when troopers pulled over a Toyota Camry for a lanes violation.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, “criminal indicators” in the car prompted the troopers to bring a drug-sniffing K-9 to the vehicle. That’s when the police dog discovered a half-kilo of cocaine and a small amount of heroin valued at $50,000.
Two Michigan men were arrested and booked into the Lorain County Jail. They are both charged with felony drug possession and drug trafficking.
