LORAIN COUNTY, Ohio — When Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers stopped an SUV on Thursday, they ended up dealing with more than a standard traffic stop.
According to the OSHP, troopers pulled over an SUV for speed and marked lanes violations on the Ohio Turnpike, near milepost 133, at around 8:30 a.m.
That’s when they smelled marijuana on the driver and decided to search the vehicle. Inside, troopers found two bags and a pill bottle full of marijuana, along with 776 illegal prescription pills, including Oxycontin and Opana.
The estimated street value of the drugs is $7,000.
James William, 43, of North Wales, Pa., was charged with drug trafficking, possession of a dangerous narcotic and possession of marijuana.
William is being held in the Lorain County Jail.
