EATON, OH (FOX19) -

A man from New Hampshire is facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized several drugs during a traffic stop in Preble County.

Troopers stopped a 1997 Chevrolet 3500 van for a moving violation on Interstate 70, near milepost 8, at approximately 11:45 a.m. on March 13. Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed 36 pounds of hydroponic marijuana, 19.2 grams of hashish, Suboxone strips and three miscellaneous pills, with a value of  approximately $180,000.

The driver, Dennis Finn, 64, of Newfields, N. H., was charged with possession of marijuana, a third-degree felony, and possession of a scheduled II substance, possession of hashish and possession of criminal tools, all fifth-degree felonies. Finn was also charged with possession of a schedule IV substance and possession of a schedule III substance, both misdemeanor charges.

Finn was incarcerated in the Preble County Jail. If convicted, he could face up to eight years in prison and up to a $17,500 fine.
