According to reports from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, on Thursday, March 1 troopers stopped a 2004 Chevrolet Impala with Ohio registration for a signal violation on U.S. Route 35 in Jackson County.

During interaction with the occupants, troopers detected an odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed 19 pounds of marijuana. During a pat-down for weapons, troopers also located 154 grams of methamphetamines on a passenger.

The contraband has an approximate street value of $43,900.

The driver, Michael D. O'Dell, age 21, and passengers, Joshua A. Williams, age 19, and Chelsey R. Little, age 19, all from Columbus, were charged with drug trafficking and possession of a controlled substance, both first-degree felonies. The individuals were incarcerated in the Jackson County Correctional Facility.
