WOOD COUNTY, OH (WTOL) - A regular traffic stop turned into a heroin bust for troopers in Wood County late last month.

Troopers pulled over Angel Garay, 57, of Chicago, over for speeding on I-80 on September 27.

That's when troopers began to search the car due to criminal observation.

During the search, a WD-40 can with a fake bottom containing 56 grams of heroin worth $6,750, was found.

Both Garay and his passenger Larry Sanders, 61, of Chicago, were taken to the Wood County Jail.

Both are facing second-degree felonies charges of possession and trafficking heroin.
