Two Akron men are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized a total of 750 grams of cocaine, worth an estimated $63,000 following a traffic stop in Summit County.

Troopers stopped a 1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88, with Ohio registration, for a turn signal and child restraint violations on Interstate 77 northbound, near milepost 123, at 1:56 p.m. Monday. Troopers observed criminal indicators and upon further investigation, determined that contraband was being concealed in the vehicle. A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed 750 grams of cocaine and $17,955 in cash. Troopers also discovered several hypodermic needles and metal spoons.

Robert C. Weaver, 55, and Rodney S. Davis, 47, both of Akron, were incarcerated in the Summit County Jail and charged with possession and trafficking in cocaine, both first-degree felonies. If convicted, they could face up to 20 years in prison and up to a $40,000 fine.

If I had a pizza in my car and drive by them could they tell me what toppings are on it without seeing it? These guys are amazing with such psychic powers, we can use them for so many other things in this world. Maybe they can move on to bigger things like knowing and stopping an event like the one Connecticut
before it happens.
