An Oregon man is facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 32 pounds of marijuana, worth approximately $144,000 following a traffic stop in Lorain County.

Troopers stopped a 1996 Mercedes, with Oregon registration, for a failure to signal violation on the Ohio Turnpike, near milepost 135, at 4:34 p.m. on January 22. Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed 32 pounds of marijuana located in the vehicle’s trunk.

Jon A. Dangelo, 44, of, Eugene, Ore., was incarcerated in the Lorain County Jail, and charged with aggravated drug trafficking and possession of marijuana, both third-degree felonies. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison and up to a $20,000 fine.
