State Highway Patrol troopers filed felony drug charges against an Ohio man after a traffic stop in Wood County.

During the traffic stop, troopers seized more than 3 pounds of marijuana worth $18,000.

At 12:14 a.m. May 21, troopers stopped a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu with Ohio registration for a headlight violation on Interstate 75. While interacting with the occupants, troopers detected an odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed the contraband.

The driver, Brandon Harris, 25, of Findlay, was incarcerated in the Wood County Jail and charged with possession and trafficking in marijuana, both third-degree felonies.

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

Three days earlier, troopers made another traffic stop in Wood County that led to felony drug charges being filed against two Tennessee men. 

At 4:30 p.m. May 18, troopers stopped a 2015 Nissan Altima with Tennessee registration for a speed violation on Interstate 75. While interacting with the occupants, troopers detected an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed the contraband — a Smith and Wesson MP .40 caliber handgun, 200 grams of marijuana and 660 grams of marijuana wax worth $15,000.

The driver, Cameron Reed, 24, of Antioch, Tenn., and passenger, Quadreon France, 23, of Smyrna, Tenn., were incarcerated in the Wood County Jail and charged with possession of hashish, a third-degree felony and possession of marijuana, a fifth-degree felony. France was also charged with improper transportation of a firearm, a fourth-degree felony.

If convicted, Reed could face up to four years in prison and up to a $12,500 fine and France could face up to five years in prison and up to a $17,500 fine.
