Troopers make Ecstasy bust in Lorain County

LORAIN COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

A Cleveland couple is in jail after being arrested with $11,000 worth of Ecstasy pills.

Ohio Highway Patrol Troopers stopped a 2012 Buick LaCrosse, with South Carolina registration, for a turn signal violation on the Ohio Turnpike, near milepost 142 in Lorain County at 7:12 p.m., on May 13.

During interaction with the passenger, she admitted to having a small bag of marijuana and a marijuana pipe hidden in her purse in the vehicle's trunk.

A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed a small bag of suspected marijuana, a glass pipe with burnt marijuana residue and a partially burnt marijuana cigar.

Further investigation revealed a perfume box containing 596 Ecstasy pills, worth an estimated $11,000.

The driver, Gordon D. Williams, 36, and passenger, Paige L. Darrington, 29, both of Cleveland, were incarcerated in the Lorain County Jail and charged with aggravated possession of  a schedule I drug and aggravated drug trafficking, both first-degree felonies.

Darrington was also charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, both minor misdemeanors.

If convicted each could face up to 20 years in prison and up to a $40,000 fine.
