Troopers seize 220 pounds of cocaine during Ohio traffic stop
Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed a drug charge against a man from Mexico after a traffic stop just west of Columbus.
During the traffic stop, troopers seized 220 pounds of cocaine worth an estimated $9 million.
Troopers patrolling Interstate 70 in Madison County Wednesday afternoon stopped a U-Haul truck with Arizona registration for allegedly following too close.
The patrol says a drug-sniffing canine led to a search of the vehicle which turned up 100 bricks of cocaine… enough to fill the hood of an OSP cruiser.
The driver, Sebastian Alapizco Flores, 25, Mexicali, Mexico, was charged with possession of cocaine.
If convicted, he could face up to 11 years in prison and up to a $20,000 fine.
