Troopers seize $22K worth of Oxycodone pills on Ohio Turnpike

ELYRIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Two men from Michigan are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 724 Oxycodone pills, worth approximately $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 724 Oxycodone pills, along with marijuana roaches and residue.                                                                                                                             

The driver, McClearry Hill, 27, of Detroit, and passenger, Thomas Johnson-Hardwick, 24, of Roseville, MI, were incarcerated in the Lorain County Jail. They have both been charged with possession of a scheduled II substance and aggravated drug trafficking, which are second-degree felonies. Additionally they face a charge of possession of marijuana, which is a minor misdemeanor.

If convicted, each could face up to 16 years in prison and up to a $30,000 fine.

    Our Saturday weather was right on par with what we have been dealing with across central and south Alabama all week long... it was hot (temperatures made their way into the low/mid 90s), it was humid (heat index values went above 100° in many towns) and we saw some relief from the heat thanks to a few isolated areas of rain.
