BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — A Michigan woman and a Kentucky man are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers discovered more than 650 Oxycodone pills in the pair’s car.
Authorities say troopers on Thursday found the pills on the center console of the vehicle driven by 38-year-old Luciana F. Loyd, of Detroit. The highway patrol in a statement said Loyd and 22-year-old Vincent K. Barksdale, of Radcliff, Ky., were pulled over for speeding on Interstate 75, near milepost 196, in northwest Ohio. It was then that a drug-sniffing dog alerted troopers about the alleged presence of the drug.
Authorities say the seized pain killers are worth about $16,000.
Loyd’s attorney could not be reached for comment. Records do not list an attorney for Barksdale.
