WOOD COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
There were three significant
drug busts in Wood County in just a matter of five days.
The Ohio State Highway
Patrol has been busy seizing hundreds of pounds of marijuana worth millions of
Toledo News Now's Jonathan
Walsh rode with one of the troopers involved in the drug busts and got an
inside look at what's working in the fight against drugs, how they spot
problems, and what it means to them when big-time drugs are out of the hands of
On July16th, around 795 and
I-75, troopers found $2,500 worth of marijuana. On July 17th, again in
Wood County, but this time they nabbed 907 pounds with a $4.1 million
value. Then on July 20th, it was a 33-pound bust on the
turnpike in Wood County with a $150,000 value.
"That's what we're
supposed to be doing, because it's out here every day," said Sgt. Scott
Wyckhouse from the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Wyckhouse was part of the
900-pound bust. He couldn't give enough praise to the officers who
stopped those who are now accused.
"Their experience is so
in-depth and they're recognized as some of the best in the country. Just
to be there with them, to see that much drugs…It's the most I've ever
seen," he said.
Sgt. Wyckhouse said it's
that kind of experience that's helping, along with training, working together
with other agencies, putting a focus on criminal patrols, and trusting their
gut on traffic stops.
"Where they're going
to, where they're coming from, and being able to pick up on what just isn't
right, what isn't normal," he explained.
The drugs are eventually
destroyed after the case clears. A small amount is used for K-9
training. Some of the cash they take is used as a slap in the face of
"We put more K-9 units
on the roadway, whatever it is," said Wyckhouse. "[The money
gives] us better equipment so we can continue to fight [the drugs]."
But even with that kind of
help and focus, Wyckhouse says U.S. law enforcement gets only about 5 percent
of what's really out there.
"So, yeah, you feel like you
make a difference, and it feels good to make a big bust or be part of a big
bust, but the reality is we got a lot more work to do."
