Troopers seize $30,600 worth of oxycodone pills in Madison County

COLUMBUS – Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed a felony drug charge against an Ohio man after a traffic stop in Madison County. During the traffic stop, troopers seized 1,020 oxycodone pills worth approximately $30,600.

On October 15, at 1:11 p.m., troopers stopped a 2006 Kia Sportage with Illinois registration for a speed violation on Interstate 70. Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed the contraband.

The suspect, George Seese, 35, Marblehead, was incarcerated in the Madison County Jail and charged with possession of drugs, a first-degree felony.

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