OTTAWA COUNTY, Ohio (WJW) – An Ottawa County deputy pulled over a pick-up truck for speeding on State Route 2 just before 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

K-9 Diesel helped with that search, leading to the bed of the pickup that had a tonneau cover on it.

Inside, they found two black trash bags filled with marijuana.

It turned out to be 46 pounds of marijuana, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office, with a street value of $55,000.

The driver, who was the only person in the vehicle, was booked in the Ottawa County Detention Facility.
