WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

Authorities say they found illegal drugs while conducting a traffic stop on I-71 in Warren County on Aug. 17.

The officers found 1,050 OxyContin® 80 milligram pills and 400 doses of heroin. The pills were an earlier version of the drug which would significantly increase the demand and the street price to around $100,000.

Authorities are investigating the source of the pills.

Ruth Colter, Gerald Weber, Keith Laney, Derek Caldwell and Glenn Fetherston, Jr. face two counts of trafficking in drugs, two counts of possession of drugs, and one count of possession of criminal tools. They told authorities they were traveling from Florida to Columbus.
