186 pounds of pot seized on Ohio Turnpike

Pot seized Tuesday in Erie Co.

A California man is locked up in Erie County after state troopers discovered this large haul of marijuana in his cargo van.

The 33-year-old from Santa Rosa was stopped Tuesday afternoon for following too closely on the Ohio Turnpike near milemarker 121.

Troopers searched the van and that's when they uncovered 186 pounds of marijuana worth nearly a half million dollars.

If convicted Christopher Glisson could get 16 years in prison. He's currently being held on a $300,000 bond.
