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.
