George Henry Jr arrested 90 pounds of marijuana in Ohio

An Arizona man is scheduled to appear in the Preble County Court today after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers recovered nearly $90,000 worth of marijuana on Interstate 70 near milepost 8 on Saturday. Troopers said George Henry Jr., 26, was charged with possession of marijuana, a second-degree felony.

Troopers said at 11:34 a.m. Saturday, Henry was stopped in a 1989 Acura Legend for a speeding violation. A drug-detecting canine was on scene and alerted to the rear of the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed five packaged bricks of marijuana, weighing approximately 90 pounds, in the trunk under a blanket.

Henry was incarcerated at the Preble County Jail. If convicted of the second-degree felony, he could face up to eight years in prison, and a maximum $15,000 fine.
