SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – A Nevada man is facing charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 90 pounds of marijuana and 806 grams of hash oil worth roughly $276,600 during a traffic stop.

On January 15 around 2:48 p.m., troopers stopped a rented 2018 Nissan Rogue with Oregon registration for a marked lanes violation on the Ohio Turnpike.

Officials say that criminal indicators were observed, and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the car.

A probable cause search revealed the drugs.

The driver was incarcerated in the Summit County Jail and charged with possession and trafficking in marijuana and liquid hash, all second-degree felonies.

If convicted, he could face up to 32 years in prison and up to a $60,000 fine.
