Troopers seize $5,000 worth of methamphetamine in Wood County

BOWLING GREEN – Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed felony drug charges against two women – one from Ohio and one from New York - after a traffic stop in Wood County. During the traffic stop, troopers seized 50 grams of methamphetamine valued at approximately $5,000. 

On November 27, 2018, at 2:37 p.m., troopers stopped a Cadillac Escalade with New York registration for an impeding traffic violation on Interstate 80. During interaction with the occupants, criminal indicators were observed and a consent search of the vehicle was requested and granted. The search revealed a digital scale with white residue. A passenger voluntarily produced the contraband. 

Passengers, Jenna Murphy, 19, of Buffalo, N.Y., and Adrien Lucienne, 28, of Toledo, were incarcerated in the Wood County Justice Center and charged with possession and trafficking methamphetamine, both second-degree felonies.

If convicted, each person could face up to eight years in prison and up to a $15,000 fine.

Last year, troopers removed 145 pounds of methamphetamine from Ohio’s roadways. For a complete list of drug arrests by county visit:
