PERRYSBURG – Ohio State Troopers seized hundreds of pills and thousands in cash after a traffic stop in Wood County this week.
The Bowling Green Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol reports that troopers stopped a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze, with Kentucky registration, for a marked lanes violation on Interstate 75, near milepost 194, in Wood County at 1:31 a.m. Wednesday. Criminal indicators were observed and a patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle.
A probable cause search revealed 243 oxycodone pills, along with $2,470 in cash in a plastic baggie wrapped in duct tape hidden within the passenger compartment.
The pills have a street value of $6,000.
The driver, Rodricus D. Johnson, 27, and passenger, Brittany M. Wilson, 24, both of Frankfort, Ky., were incarcerated in the Wood County jail and charged with possession of and trafficking in drugs, both second-degree felonies.
