Two men from Michigan are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 724 Oxycodone pills, worth about $22,000 during a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike.

Troopers stopped a 2007 Chevy Impala, with Alabama registration, for a marked lanes violation, on the Ohio Turnpike, near milepost 133, in Lorain County at 5:32 p.m. Tuesday. Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed the 724 Oxycodone pills, along with marijuana roaches and residue.
The driver, McClearry D. Hill, 27, of Detroit, Mich., and passenger, Thomas G. Johnson-Hardwick, 24, of Roseville, Mich., were incarcerated in the Lorain County Jail and charged with possession of a scheduled II substance and aggravated drug trafficking, both second-degree felonies and possession of marijuana, a minor misdemeanor. If convicted each could face up to 16 years in prison and up to a $30,000 fine.



I know for a fact that those pills sell for $5.00 apiece on the street. That amounts to $3,620.00.

Why do they always say that the bust was worth more than it really was? I'm very glad they caught it but I'm just sayin'.


$1 per milligram on the street..

enough of the bs

Hey "luvblues" know it all, they go for $1.00 a milligram. Oxy 30 = $30.00. My math equals $21720.00, pretty close to the estimate given. Take your expertise to another story...


mg. were given where?


I'm wondering how you all know what this stuff is worth on the street. LOL


just a "educated" guess..
