Troopers seize $11,514 worth of methamphetamine in Butler County

FRANKLIN – Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed felony drug charges against an Ohio man after a traffic stop in Butler County. During the traffic stop, troopers seized 114 grams of methamphetamine valued at approximately $11,514.  

On August 1, 2018 at 4:33 p.m., troopers stopped a 2017 Jeep Cherokee with Ohio registration for a license plate violation on Interstate 75 near milepost 28. Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed the contraband. 

The driver, Thomas J. Williams, 28, of Felicity, was incarcerated in the Butler County Jail and charged with possession and trafficking in a controlled substance, both second-degree felonies. 

If convicted, he could face up to 16 years in prison and up to a $30,000 fine.
