WAPAKONETA – Two men and one woman are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized marijuana-laced lollipops and cookies, crack cocaine and prescription pills, worth an estimated $8,000, following a traffic stop in Auglaize County.

 Troopers stopped a rented 2012 Nissan Murano, with Georgia registration, for a speed violation on Interstate 75, southbound, near milepost 114, at 11:11 p.m. on October 14. While speaking with the driver, troopers detected an odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed the marijuana-laced lollipops and cookies, 29 grams of crack cocaine, a variety of prescription pills and marijuana in the vehicle.  

 The driver, Kenneth Franklin James II, 30, of Westland, Mich., and passengers, Ricky Dewayne Hickman, 32, of Chattanooga, Tenn., and Celsi Lynne Parks, 18, of Ypsilanti, Mich., were charged with trafficking in cocaine, a first-degree felony and trafficking in marijuana, a fourth-degree felony.

 All three suspects were incarcerated in the Auglaize County Jail. If convicted, each could face up to 11 years in prison and up to a $25,000 fine.
