FINDLAY, OH (WOIO) - Two Michigan residents are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 900 OxyContin pills - valued at $72,000 - during a traffic stop early Saturday in Hancock County.

The driver of the vehicle, 24-year-old Rachel S. Collins and passenger, 29-year-old Eddie Lee Spivey, were charged with possession of a schedule II substance - a second-degree felony.

Troopers stopped a 2010 Ford F-150, with Michigan registration, for a speed violation on southbound Interstate 75 near milepost 159 in the city of Findlay at approximately 1:31 a.m. Saturday morning.

Troopers observed criminal indicators and a Hancock County Sheriff's Office drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed 900 pills of OxyContin.

The suspects were incarcerated in the Hancock County Justice Center. If convicted, both could face up to eight years in prison and a $15,000 fine.
