The Ohio State Highway Patrol made two traffic stops Wednesday that netted large amounts of marijuana in western and central Ohio.

Troopers arrested six men in Lake Township, near Toledo, during two traffic stops that netted 907 pounds, or $4.1 million worth, of marijuana and $13,908 cash.

OSHP said they pulled over a 2014 Subaru Outback for following a motorhome too closely. OSHP found more than $9,000 cash in the vehicle.

They later pulled the motorhome over and found  the marijuana and $4,188 inside.

A Middleburg Heights man was arrested.
