OSHP troopers seize pot, prescription drugs on Ohio Turnpike



Published: Thu, November 8, 2012 @ 10:39 a.m.

MILAN, Ohio — A California man faces felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 186 pounds of marijuana and prescription drugs, worth more than $425,000 after a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike in Erie County.

Troopers stopped a 2007 Chevrolet Express cargo van, with Illinois registration, for a following too closely violation on the Ohio Turnpike eastbound in Erie County at 12:06 p.m. Tuesday. Troopers observed criminal indicators and a patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle.

A probable-cause search of the vehicle revealed 123 vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana, weighing about 186 pounds. Troopers also discovered 24 oxycodone hydrochloride tablets and drug paraphernalia.

The driver, Christopher Roy Glisson, 33, of Santa Rosa, Calif., was placed in Erie County Jail and charged with possession of marijuana and trafficking in marijuana, both second-degree felonies.
