A Kentucky man is facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers found 885 grams of hydroponic marijuana, worth nearly $9,000, following a traffic crash in Miami County.

Troopers clocked a 2013 Chevy Captiva at 89 mph on Interstate 75. When the trooper attempted to catch-up with the violator, it struck a commercial vehicle from behind, causing a crash near milepost 83, at 8:30 a.m. Monday. As troopers were conducting a crash investigation, they found several bags of hydroponic marijuana that had become dislodged from the bumper during the crash. The driver was also found to be driving under suspension.

Brandon D. Means, 27, was transported to Upper Valley Medical for his injuries and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of criminal tools, both fifth-degree felonies. If convicted, he could face up to two years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine.



Too bad. If he was caught in Huron County, he would have only gotten a slap on the wrist for this.

Sucks...this guy has a new car to do his dirty work,i know a few honest hard working people in this community trying to raise families that don't even have a vehicle.

Well, you can bet on one thing and thats the state will own this car,the bad side? the guy driving the truck had to stop and fill out an accident report that will stay on his license.
