A Tennessee man is facing felony drug charges after Ohio Highway Patrol troopers seized 704 prescriptions pills, worth nearly $17,000 during a traffic stop in Wood County.
Troopers stopped a 2004 PT Cruiser, with Tennessee registration, for a following too closely violation, on Interstate 75, near milepost 183, in Wood County at 12:45 a.m. Monday. Criminal indicators were observed and a Rossford Police Department drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed a baggie containing 372 hydrocodone pills, 149 alprazolam pills, 88 oxycodone pills, and 95 oxymorphone pills.
The driver, Brandon Hackett, 27, of Chattanooga, Tenn., was incarcerated in the Wood County Jail and charged with numerous felony counts.
