$1.7M marijuana haul bound for Toledo seized

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.

Troopers said a drug-sniffing dog led deputies to five boxes containing bundles of marijuana in the back of the pickup truck.

Troopers said they believe the shipment was moving from Las Vegas to Toledo. The marijuana is valued at $1.7 million.
