Two Jamestown, N.Y. residents are facing felony charges after state troopers found they were driving on the Ohio Turnpike with 2.5 pounds of marijuana and marijuana-laced candy.

Andrew M. Ernewein, 29, and Rachel K. Ernewein, 30, were charged with third-degree felony possessing marijuana, a charge that carries a three-year maximum prison sentence.

State troopers stopped their 2003 Chrysler Voyager for speeding at about 8 a.m. Wednesday on the Ohio Turnpike in Trumbull County.

Troopers said Ernewein admitted having marijuana in the van. Officers found 2.5 pounds of marijuana in small plastic bags, four marijuana-laced candy bars and three-marijuana-laced bonbons, worth an estimated $11,000 total.
