An Alabama man is facing felony drug and weapon charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 98 ecstasy pills, worth nearly $1,700, stolen documents and a loaded .22 caliber handgun, during a traffic stop in Auglaize County.

Troopers stopped a 2003 Chevy Impala, with Alabama registration, for a speed violation on Interstate 75, near milepost 117, at 7:05 a.m. Saturday. During a pat-down for weapons, troopers discovered a loaded .22 caliber handgun in the driver’s front pocket. A search of the vehicle revealed a plastic bag containing 98 ecstasy pills, various documents later found to be stolen and a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle.
                                                                                                                                                            
The driver, Louis A. Williams, 33, of Birmingham, Ala., was incarcerated in the Auglaize County Jail and charged with possession of drugs, a first-degree felony and for carrying a concealed weapon, a third-degree felony. If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in prison and up to a $30,000 fine.

I can't believe an ecstasy pill will go for over $17.00 a pill. No wonder the addicts are a bunch of thieving as*holes.
