The women were driving on I-75 at 12:45 a.m. Friday when they were stopped by troopers for a marked lanes and speeding violation, troopers reported. During the stop, troopers said they saw marijuana in the car and, during a search of the car, found a magnetic box inside with 989 oxycodone pills, worth an estimated $18,000.
