Troopers seize $6,500 worth of heroin in Scioto County

COLUMBUS – Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed a felony drug charge against a Michigan man after a traffic stop in Scioto County. During the traffic stop, troopers seized 65 grams of heroin worth approximately $6,500.

On May 26, at 11 p.m., troopers stopped a 2020 Toyota Camry with Oklahoma registration for a marked lanes violation on U.S. 23. Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. During a pat-down of the passenger for weapons, troopers located the contraband. The passenger admitted to ownership of the contraband.

The passenger, Donald Davis Jr., 25, of Detroit, was incarcerated in the Scioto County Jail and charged with possession of heroin, a first-degree felony.

If convicted, he could face up to 11 years in prison and up to a $20,000 fine.
