HANCOCK COUNTY, OH (WTOL) - A Kentucky man is in jail for possession and trafficking drugs after a traffic stop in Hancock County Monday morning.

Usbias Phillips, 30, was driving south on I-75, just south of Findlay when he was pulled over by a Hancock County Sheriff's Office K9 unit.

The K9 alerted the officer, and a subsequent search revealed more than six pounds of marijuana. A large amount of cash was also found.

Phillips was arrested and charged with possession and trafficking of marijuana, both third-degree felonies.
