LORAIN COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -
Troopers stopped a 2002 Chevy Venture with Michigan registration for a marked lanes violation on the Ohio Turnpike in Lorain County on April 1 just before 6 p.m.
The trooper observed the Khat in plain view on the driver and passenger's laps. The suspects voluntarily revealed a grocery bag containing five ounces of Khat.
A search of the vehicle revealed 189 cartons of cigarettes that had fraudulent tax stickers on them. The contraband has a street value of $9,500.
The driver, Saleh A. Ahmed, 28, and passenger, Mahsen A. Ahmed, 27, both of Dearborn, Michigan, were incarcerated in the Lorain County Jail and charged with possession of a schedule I substance and untaxed cigarettes.
Khat is a flowering evergreen shrub native to East Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. The fresh leaves, twigs and shoots of the Khat shrub are chewed like tobacco and is considered a controlled substance.
