Troopers stopped a 2012 Chevrolet Cruz, with Ohio registration, for lanes and speed violations, on Interstate 75 in Hancock County at 12:45 a.m. on Friday. While speaking with the driver, troopers observed marijuana in plain view. A search of the vehicle revealed a magnetic box containing 989 oxycodone pills.
The driver, Mahogany Dean, 37, and passenger, Tiffany Lindsey, 47, both of Detroit, Mich., were taken to the Hancock County Jail and charged with possession of a scheduled II substance, a first-degree felony and possession of criminal tools, a fourth-degree felony.
If convicted, each could face up to 21 and-a-half years in prison and up to a $25,000 fine.
