A Michigan man was arrested early Wednesday after State Highway Patrol troopers found Oxycodone and marijuana in his car during a traffic stop on southbound Interstate 75.
According to the patrol, troopers stopped a rented 2013 Toyota Camry with Ohio registration near milepost 158 in Hancock County at 1:37 a.m. Wednesday for a speed violation.
A drug-sniffing dog from the Findlay Police Department alerted authorities to the vehicle during the stop.
A probable cause search by troopers revealed 479 Oxycodone pills and nearly eight grams of marijuana under the spare tire in the vehicle’s trunk.
The contraband has a street value of approximately $12,000, according to the patrol.
The driver, Kareem Ameen-Haynes Walker, 25, of Clinton Township, Mich., was charged with possession of drugs, a second-degree felony. He is currently being held in Hancock County jail.
