Troopers reported that they stopped a vehicle for a marked-lanes violation on southbound I-75 in Perrysburg just after midnight today. Troopers said they observed "criminal indicators" and a drug-sniffing dog was brought to the scene.

Inside the vehicle troopers found 32 grams of cocaine, six grams of heroin, and one gram of crack cocaine. The patrol estimated the drugs were worth more than $5,500.
