WAPAKONETA, Ohio (WDTN) - An Alabama man faces drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers stopped him for speeding.
Troopers found 98 ecstasy pills worth $1,700 after they stopped Louis Williams, 33, on Saturday, February 23 along Interstate 75 in Auglaize County. They also found stolen documents and a handgun.
Troopers say they found the gun in the suspect's front pocket. The drugs and documents were found inside the car as was a small amount of marijuana.
Williams is in the Auglaize County Jail charged with drug possession and carrying a concealed weapon.
He faces up to 15-years in prison and a $30,000 fine if convicted.
Varnado said on December 8, just four days after the truck stop's opening, her fear became reality when a hired armed security guard shot and killed a trucker. As of now, no charges have been filed as police continue to investigate.
