LORAIN COUNTY -- Two people from Pennsylvania are facing felony drug charges after troopers discovered cocaine worth $25,000 during a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike in Lorain County.

Troopers stopped a minivan with Pennsylvania plates for a marked lane violation on June 17 near milepost 135.

While talking to the driver, troopers say they noticed a rectangular object concealed in the passenger's pants. During a pat-down for weapons, troopers then seized eight ounces of cocaine the passenger had concealed on him.

The driver and the passenger are being held in the Lorain County Hail facing possession and trafficking charges.
