Texas man arrested in I-75 drug bust

A Texas man remained in the Wood County jail last night in lieu of $100,000 bond for transporting about 45 pounds of marijuana through Perrysburg Township, police said.

Jeremy Brown, 25, of Killeen, Texas, was arrested for drug possession about 8:15 p.m. Thursday.

He was arraigned Friday in Perrysburg Municipal Court and is to appear in court again Thursday.

Perrysburg Township police stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation on northbound I-75 south of Buck Road and recognized an odor of marijuana, police said.

A police canine unit was called to the scene and alerted to compartments in the vehicle where five bundles of marijuana, with an estimated street value of more than $100,000, were hidden, according to police.
