PERRYSBURG TWP., Ohio (WYTV) – A California man is facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 101 pounds of hydroponic marijuana, worth approximately $458,540, following a traffic stop in Wood County.
Troopers stopped a rented 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan for following too closely to another vehicle on Interstate 80, near milepost 67, at 9:51 a.m. Monday. Police said a Woodville Police Department drug-sniffing canine was brought in due to criminal indicators, and the dog alerted to the vehicle. Police said a search revealed the drugs.
The driver, 45-year-old Stanley Pang, from Sacramento, Calif., was charged with possession of marijuana and trafficking in drugs, both second-degree felonies.
If convicted, he could face up to 16 years in prison and up to a $30,000 fine.
