Troopers seize $17,750 worth of cocaine in Wood County

COLUMBUS – Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed felony drug charges against a Michigan woman after a traffic stop in Wood County. During the traffic stop, troopers seized 500 grams of cocaine worth $17,750.

On March 7, at 3:20 p.m., troopers stopped a rented 2019 Jeep Compass with Michigan registration for a speed violation on Interstate 75. While interacting with the driver, troopers detected an odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed the contraband.

The driver, Karrisa Calhoun, 30, of Grand Rapids, Mich., was incarcerated in the Wood County Justice Center and charged with possession and trafficking in cocaine, both first-degree felonies.

If convicted, she could face up to 22 years in prison and up to a $40,000 fine.
