What started as a routine
traffic stop for a faulty tail light turned into a much bigger investigation
for Ohio State troopers in Findlay.
Keisha Sullivan, 30, from
Columbus, is now in jail after OSHP found 620 Xanax pills and more than $3,000
in her car when they pulled her over on Sunday. Troopers say the pills weren't
just for selling, though.
"It's been determined that
the driver has an addiction to prescription medication," said Sgt. Matthew
"We observed a vehicle
traveling with no headlights on and initiated a traffic stop," Sgt. Dyer explained.
That stop turned up $7,500
worth of Oxycodone pills. The driver and passenger are now facing drug
Troopers say Findlay does
not appear to be a final stop for the narcotics, but with I-75 so close, more
drugs are passing through the city.
Over the past five years,
prescription pills have become one of the top drugs trafficked through the
county, according to Sgt. Dyer. He says troopers have learned to watch for
telltale signs during traffic stops.
"One may tell us what they
want us to hear, and the other may tell us the truth," he said.
And typically, traffickers
are driving in rental cars.
Dyers says there's a way
you can help cut down on the amount of drugs making it into your city: Keep an
eye out for suspicious behavior from drivers, such as lights out or missing
plates. If you see anything that seems off, send a tip through the "Safer Ohio"
app, which is free to download to your phone.
