HUDSON, Ohio – A Colorado man and a New Jersey woman accused of shuttling $1.1 million of hydroponic marijuana through Ohio now face criminal charges.
Terrance G. Hays, 63, and Beth L. Devine, 62, were caught Wednesday during a traffic stop with 234 pounds of the drug inside their Ford Taurus, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Both face a felony charge of trafficking with marijuana.
Their car was stopped for a lane change violation at 2:31 p.m. on the Ohio Turnpike at mile marker 185.
Troopers discovered the marijuana after drug dogs indicated that drugs were in the car, according to the highway patrol.
Hays and Devine were booked in the Summit County jail.
Each faces up to eight years in prison if convicted.
