A Detroit man is facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 2 pounds of heroin, worth approximately $136,000 following a traffic stop in Hancock County.

Troopers stopped a 2014 Ford Contour, with Virginia registration, for a speed violation on Interstate 75 southbound, near milepost 159, at 12:49 a.m. Sunday. Criminal indicators were observed and a Findlay Police Department drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed two pounds of heroin located under the air filter in the engine compartment.

The driver, Christopher Triplett, 42, of, Detroit, was incarcerated in the Hancock County Jail and charged with possession of heroin, a first-degree felony. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison and up to a $20,000 fine.



after our army goes to all the trouble to protect the poppy crops so this stuff can be made, troopers bust the people with it. im glad it's not on the street and i just cannot understand why we protect the crops and the people who grow this junk..

hit the road jack

You have to realize that the prisons are a "for profit" business now and someone probably gets a kickback from the main man for any and all prisoners they have to incarcerate,its just a circle jerk type operation.
What they should be doing is investigating the military bases where this crap comes in at and find out who is really in charge or profiting from all this stuff that comes into this country.

I notice the paper hasn't run an article on the "police state" military equipment that was used in Fergeson,Mo. riots. All the nay sayers when I said about the monster military vehicle the NPD was showing off.


Great job guys!!
