TOLEDO, Ohio — Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers have filed felony drug charges against an Ohio man after a stop in Sandusky County, where troopers seized more than 6 pounds of cocaine worth approximately $90,000.

On April 7, at 5:31 p.m., troopers stopped a 2010 Nissan Maxima with an Ohio registration for a window tint violation on U.S. 20. Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed two backpacks in the trunk that contained the contraband.

The driver, Ricardo Pizana, 35, of Fremont, was incarcerated in the Sandusky County Jail and charged with possession and trafficking in cocaine, both first-degree felonies.

If convicted, Pizana could face up to 22 years in prison and up to a $40,000 fine.
