WEST JEFFERSON, Ohio (WCMH)– Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers arrested two men after more than $615,000 worth of marijuana was allegedly found in their vehicle.

According to the OSHP, the two men were stopped January 13, on Interstate 70 near milepost 72, in a 2014 Subaru station wagon with Colorado registration, for a traffic violation.

Troopers said criminal indicators were observed, and when a drug-sniffing dog alerted to the vehicle, a probable cause search was executed and the marijuana was found.

Kelly Harding, 47, and passenger Craig Voigt, 46, both from Carbondale Colorado, were arrested and charged second-degree felony possession and trafficking marijuana.

Both men face up to 16 years in prison if convicted, and a $30,000 fine.
