A Kentucky man is facing a felony charge after troopers seized cash and prescription pills following a traffic stop Friday night.
Troopers stopped a Chevrolet Trailblazer with Kentucky registration, for failing to signal during a lane change, along with a following too closely violation, on Interstate 75 near milepost 187 Friday at 11:22 p.m. Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle.
A probable cause search revealed $7,600 in cash and 10 Methadone pills. Dewey Kinney, 46, of Pike County, KY, was incarcerated in the Wood County Justice Center. He is charged with possession of Methadone, which is a fifth-degree felony.
