Ohio State Highway Patrol seizes 510 pounds of marijuana

Ohio SHP Marijuana bust

State Highway Patrol troopers seized 510 pounds of marijuana from a truck they stopped on the Ohio Turnpike in Olmsted Falls. Troopers found the drugs, valued at $1.3 million, in a 2018 Penske truck with Indiana license plates that they stopped for speeding and a marked lanes violation, the Highway Patrol said in a news release. Troopers became suspicious when they stopped the truck about 1:20 p.m. Monday. They called in a drug-sniffing canine, the news release says. They found the marijuana packed into U-Haul boxes in the back of the truck. The Highway Patrol released a photo Thursday that shows roughly two-dozen boxes in the truck.
