Two Detroit men are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized an estimated $3,500 worth of crack cocaine, marijuana and prescription drugs during a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike near Elyria in Lorain County.

Troopers stopped a 2011 Chevy Aveo, with New Jersey registration, for a marked lanes violation on the Ohio Turnpike, eastbound, near milepost 135, at 4:38 p.m. Oct. 4.

Troopers detected an odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed an ounce of crack cocaine, 10 Vicodin tablets, and 11 grams of marijuana. Also discovered hidden in the vehicle's dashboard were baggies used to package narcotics for sale.

The driver, Daran S. McCollough, 27, and passenger, Antonyo C. Jones, 28, both of Detroit, Mich., were incarcerated in the Lorain County Jail and charged with possession of crack cocaine and aggravated drug trafficking, both first-degree felonies. They were also charged with possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony.

If convicted, each could face up to 21 years in prison and up to a $42,500 fine.

You are a crack head rross.....when they charge someone with drug possession they will always charge them with the drug that carries more weight if multiple drugs are found. Hence the charge crack cocaine charge.
