Ohio State Patrol Marijuana Bust: 235 Pounds Worth $1.2M Recovered

By    |   Thursday, 29 Jan 2015 07:34 PM

Ohio State Patrol officers recovered 235 pounds of marijuana with an estimated value of $1.2 million during a traffic stop just west of Cleveland on Jan. 21.

Kimberly Benson, 42, and Daniel Essad, 62, from Reno, Nevada, have been charged with felony possession and trafficking in marijuana, NewsNet 5 reported.

Ohio State Patrol troopers said they pulled over the 2007 Chevy pickup truck for failure to signal and marked lanes violations, and a drug detection K-9 signaled the presence of marijuana, the station reported.

Other large drug busts were made this week, including one in Langley, British Columbia, that was a multimillion-dollar operation, and in San Jose Thursday, a team of law enforcements officers raided a furniture store that was concealing a large marijuana growing operation.

“Furniture visible from the street was literal window dressing, investigators said, concealing a huge back room packed wall-to-wall with pot plants, with overhead air ducts and heating lamps,” the San Jose Mercury News said. “Police also recovered 50 pounds of processed marijuana, and determined that the electric meter had been bypassed to the tune of $80,000 worth of stolen electricity from PG&E.”
