LORAIN COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

Ohio State Troopers stopped a 2003 Dodge Caravan, with West Virginia registration, for a marked lanes violation on the Ohio Turnpike eastbound, near milepost 134, in Lorain County at 5:01 p.m. on May 21.

Signs of criminal behavior led to a probable search of the vehicle.

During the search, drug-sniffing canines confirmed the officers' suspicions.

Officers found 1.5 pounds of high grade marijuana inside two vacuum sealed bags contained within a dog food bag in the rear cargo area of the vehicle.

The contraband has an estimated street value of $3,750.

The suspects, Heather Zema, 33, and Jeffrey Taylor, 32, both of New Cumberland, W.Va., were transported to the Lorain County Jail and charged with possession of marijuana, a fifth-degree felony, and trafficking marijuana, a fourth-degree felony.
