SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio — The Ohio State Highway Patrol said when troopers stopped a man for speeding on the Turnpike in Summit County they found 500 hydrocodone pills and a small amount of marijuana.

The street value amounted to about $5,000.

Terence Lee, 48, of Washington, Pa., was charged with possession of a schedule II substance and trafficking in drugs.

Both are third degree felonies.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said when troopers stopped Lee Sunday evening, they detected a burnt marijuana odor coming from his vehicle, which prompted the search.

The pills were found in an unmarked pill bottle.

      Even if someone wanted to say your ridiculous or that your point is invalid or that drugs are a giant problem in America and transporting hydrocodone to sell is and should be a punishable crime, I doubt you would be able to read it. Your paragraph is almost unreadable and also incredibly stupid. So, I challenge you to go to the library. Then….. come back and make a stupid comment. Eeeeeeeeeee
