Three people from Kentucky are facing felony drug charges after they were stopped this morning on Interstate 75 in Findlay with approximately $24,000 in Ecstasy pills, according to the Findlay post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Darius Reaves, 42; Martise Corley, 35; and Colette Tooley, 24, all of Louisville, Ky., were arrested after troopers stopped a rented 2014 Ford Edge near milepost 159 at 12:51 a.m.
The vehicle, which had Florida registration and was driven by Reaves, was initially stopped for failing to display taillights. A drug-sniffing dog from the Findlay Police Department alerted authorities to the vehicle, and a subsequent search revealed 2,421 Ecstasy pills hidden under the rear seat.
Reaves, Corley and Tooley are being held in Hancock County Jail and have been charged with possession of a controlled substance, a first-degree felony. If convicted, each could face up to 10 years in prison and up to a $20,000 fine.
