The Michigan pipeline continues to produce a large number of arrests, and an even bigger amount of drugs. Troopers seized 1,116 Oxycodone pills and five grams of marijuana, with a combined street value of $27,000 as they arrested two Michigan residents Thursday.
Troopers from the Portsmouth Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol say they stopped a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu on U.S. 23 in Lucasville at around 10:20 p.m. for several moving violations. Troopers said they detected an odor of marijuana coming from the passenger compartment of the vehicle, leading to a search of the vehicle. That search revealed approximately five grams of marijuana and 1,116 30 milligram Oxycodone pills.
The driver of the vehicle, Anthony D. Owens, 47, and a passenger, Marquetta M. Davis, 24, both from Michigan, were charged with possession of a schedule II substance and trafficking in drugs, both felonies of the first degree. Both were incarcerated in the Scioto County Jail.
