FINDLAY, Ohio - Troopers made another big drug bust in Ohio Thursday, the second one made during a traffic stop in two days.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said troopers pulled over a Mitsubishi Laser at 4:10 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 75 near Findlay for a marked lanes violation.
According to the patrol, trooper "observed criminal indicators" and a drug-sniffing dog alerted to the vehicle.
A search of the vehicle turned up two bags of marijuana in the trunk.
Police arrested the driver, 21-year-old Justin Jones of Burlington, Ky. He was charged with possession of marijuana and taken to the Hancock County Justice Center.
Troopers said the marijuana confiscated during the traffic stop is worth about $4,500.
Also this week, troopers arrested three men from California after a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike near Toledo turned up about $416,000 worth of marijuana hidden in the bumper of their car.
