FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Two Detroit women are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 989 Oxycodone pills, worth nearly $18,000, during a traffic stop in Hancock County Friday.

Troopers stopped a Chevrolet Cruz with Ohio registration for marked lanes and speed violations on Interstate 75 near milepost 157 at 12:45 a.m. During interaction with the driver, troopers observed marijuana in plain view. A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed a magnetic box containing 989 Oxycodone pills. 

The driver, Mahogany Dean, 37, and passenger, Tiffany Lindsey, 47, both of Detroit, were incarcerated in the Hancock County Jail. They have been charged with possession of a scheduled II substance, a first-degree felony, as well as possession of criminal tools, a fourth-degree felony.

If convicted, each could face up to 21 1/2 years in prison and up to a $25,000 fine.
