|Officer, may I please roll around in the evidence?|
State Troopers in Lorain County, Ohio seized 90 pounds of marijuana “valued at more than $200,000” after a traffic stop early Tuesday morning.
Officers stopped a 1992 Mitsubishi pickup truck for a marked lanes violation on the Ohio Turnpike near S.R. 58, reports Angie Price at NBC4i.com.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, troopers saw “criminal indicators” in the vehicle (rolling papers? roaches? Grateful Dead CDs?) and a drug dog was called to the scene.
A “probable cause” search then revealed the 90 beautiful pounds of pot.
The unfortunate Adam Liebling, 53, of Leslie, Arkansas, was charged with possession of marijuana (I’m thinking a “with intent to distribute” is sure to be tacked on), and is still in the Lorain County Jail (which is almost certainly a shit hole).
Liebling is facing up to eight years in prison and a $15,000 fine if he is convicted.
