PERRYSBURG, Ohio (AP) - The State Highway Patrol says troopers seized 263 pounds of marijuana with an estimated value of $596,000 after a traffic stop in northwest Ohio’s Wood County.

The agency says the drugs were found after troopers stopped a rented SUV for a lane violation on Interstate 80 in Perrysburg Township on Monday afternoon.

The patrol says a drug-sniffing dog alerted to the vehicle, and a subsequent search turned up the marijuana.

Troopers say the driver, a 27-year-old man from Port Chester, New York has been jailed on drug possession and trafficking charges in Wood County.
