CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A Michigan man is facing felony drug charges following a traffic stop in Ohio along State Route 2.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said troopers stopped a 2020 Chevrolet Impala with Florida registration for speeding in Ottawa County on Jan. 2 just after 10 p.m.

The odor of burnt marijuana in the car prompted a probable cause search, according to the OSHP.

During the search, five pounds of methamphetamine, 130 grams of cocaine, and 214 grams of suspected fentanyl were seized.

The confiscated drugs are estimated to value approximately $43,500, the highway patrol said.
