BEREA, OH (WOIO) -
A man and a woman from West Virginia are facing felony drug charges after troopers seized 890 Oxycodone pills, worth approximately $27,000 during a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike.
Troopers stopped a 2009 Toyota for a marked lanes violation in Lorain County just after 8 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Troopers observed drug paraphernalia in plain view and the passenger throwing an object on the rear floor when instructed to exit the vehicle. A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed additional drug paraphernalia; a small blue flashlight which the passenger threw and was found to contain five oxycodone pills; a baggy of white powder and nine additional prescription pills. During interaction with the driver, she voluntarily revealed that she concealed an additional 885 oxycodone pills on her person.
The driver, Hannah Aloi, 23, and passenger, Andrew Stayton, 31, both of Buckhannon, W. Va., were incarcerated in the Lorain County Jail and charged with possession of a scheduled II substance, aggravated drug trafficking and possession of drug paraphernalia.
If convicted, each could face up to 20 years in prison and up to a $40,000 fine.
