Illinois resident indicted for drugs

A Naperville, Ill., man who was arrested after authorities seized more than 100 pounds of suspected marijuana from his vehicle in a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike was indicted yesterday by a Lucas County grand jury.

Erjon Ruci, 28, was charged with possession of marijuana and trafficking in marijuana.

Ohio Highway Patrol troopers stopped his westbound vehicle July 1 on the turnpike near the Toledo Airport-Swanton interchange on July 1, citing a traffic-lane violation. The marijuana was valued at $4.7 million.

He is being held in the Lucas County jail. Bond has not been set yet.
