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.

Men from Rochester, N.Y., Charlotte, N.C., and Houston, Texas were arrested. Another man troopers later identified as a known drug violator, fled with his 7-year-old son but is expected to turn himself in.

Later in the day in Ashland County in central Ohio, troopers pulled a car over with 30 pounds of marijuana in cardboard boxes and four Valium pills.

A Middleburg Heights man was arrested.
