Troopers find marijuana stems and buds during traffic stop

COLUMBUS, OH (Toledo News Now) -

An Ohio man is facing a felony drug charge after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized a garbage bag full of marijuana buds and stems during a traffic stop in the state's capital.

Upon approaching the vehicle, troopers detected an odor of raw marijuana. During interaction with the passenger, he admitted to having marijuana in the vehicle's trunk.

A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed a garbage bag containing nearly 1.5 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $3,000.

The passenger, Stephen D. Thomas Jr., of Columbus, OH, was incarcerated in the Franklin County Jail. He has been charged with possession of marijuana, which is a fifth-degree felony.
