PIQUA, Ohio - Ohio Highway Patrol troopers seized 750 pounds of suspected marijuana they said was bound for Toledo during a traffic stop on I-75 north of Piqua Sunday night.
Ramon Yslas, 55, of Tucson is being held in the Miami County jail on two counts of felony drug abuse. Bond was set at $50,000.
