OSHP seizes $1 million worth of cocaine during traffic stop

A Chicago man is facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 10 kilos of cocaine valued at $1 million during a traffic stop Thursday in Preble County. 

Troopers stopped a 1999 Honda Accord for a speed violation on Interstate 70, near milepost 7, at approximately 12:34 p.m. Thursday. A probable cause search revealed the 10 kilos of cocaine. 

The driver, Walter Quevedo, 24, of Chicago, Ill., was charged with possession of cocaine, a first-degree felony and possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony. 

The suspect was incarcerated in the Preble County Jail. If convicted, he could face up to 11 years in prison and a $22,500 fine. 

A photo of the seized cocaine is available for download on the Patrol's web site at www.statepatrol.ohio.gov.
