Troopers seize $15,800 worth of methamphetamine in Scioto County

COLUMBUS – Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed a felony drug charge against an Ohio man and woman after a traffic stop in Scioto County. During the traffic stop, troopers seized 158 grams of methamphetamine worth approximately $15,800.

On July 12, at 7:31 p.m., troopers stopped a 2006 Toyota Camry with Ohio registration for a marked lanes violation on U.S. 23. While interacting with the occupants, troopers detected an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed the contraband.

The driver, Ebony J. Cannedy, 21, and passenger, Galvin L. Bowden, 22, both from Dayton, were incarcerated in the Scioto County Jail and charged with possession of methamphetamine, a second-degree felony.

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