Two Cincinnati men are facing felony drug charges after police found them with $2.2 million worth of marijuana during a traffic stop.

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers stopped a U-Haul truck with Arizona registration for a marked lanes violation on westbound I-275 in Hamilton County on Wednesday.

A probable cause search revealed 32 bundles of marijuana totaling 570 pounds on the floor in the rear cargo area.

The driver, Quincy D. Showes, 25, and passenger Darius J. Jackson, 22, both of Cincinnati, were charged with trafficking and possession of marijuana, both second-degree felonies.

Both suspects were incarcerated in the Hamilton County Justice Center. If convicted, they could face up to 16 years in prison and up to a $30,000 fine.
