Two Michigan women are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 989 Oxycodone pills, worth nearly $18,000 during a traffic stop in Hancock County.
Troopers stopped a 2012 Chevrolet Cruz, with Ohio registration, for marked lanes and speed violations, on Interstate 75, near milepost 157, in Hancock County at 12:45 a.m. Friday. During interaction with the driver, troopers observed marijuana in plain view. A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed a magnetic box containing 989 oxycodone pills.
The driver, Mahogany Dean, 37, and passenger, Tiffany Lindsey, 47, both of Detroit, Mich., were incarcerated in the Hancock County Jail and charged with possession of a scheduled II substance, a first-degree felony and possession of criminal tools, a fourth-degree felony. If convicted each could face up to 21 and-a-half years in prison and up to a $25,000 fine.
