CLEVELAND (Toledo News Now) -

An Ohio man is facing felonious charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers found marijuana in his vehicle Tuesday morning, worth an estimated $23,000.

Troopers stopped a 1999 Dodge Avenger for a registration violation on Interstate 71 near milepost 244 in Cleveland at 11:07 a.m. The driver was found to be driving under suspension.

An administrative inventory of the vehicle revealed a cardboard box containing 5 pounds of marijuana, worth $23,000.
