Troopers seize $27,500 worth of marijuana, hashish and THC in Wood County

COLUMBUS – Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed felony drug charges against a Michigan man and woman after a traffic stop in Wood County. During the traffic stop, troopers seized more than 9 pounds of marijuana edibles, 26 mason jars of THC Kool-Aid, 92 THC vape cartridges, and 15 grams of hashish wax worth $27,500.

On February 16, at 7:15 p.m., troopers stopped a 2005 Scion XB with Michigan registration for a speed violation on Interstate 75. While interacting with the occupants, troopers detected an odor of raw marijuana and observed marijuana in plain view. A probable cause search revealed the contraband.

The driver, Natasha L. Graham, 35, of Waterford, Mich., and passenger, Don S. Spillers Jr., 37, of Pontiac, Mich., were incarcerated in the Wood County Justice Center and charged with possession and trafficking in marijuana, both third-degree felonies, and possession and trafficking in THC, both fifth-degree felonies.

If convicted, each could face up to eight years in prison and up to a $25,000 fine.
