Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers stopped a vehicle on I-75 in Hancock County for a headlight violation, but ended up arresting the driver and passenger on felony charges.

OSHP posted to their Facebook page on Tuesday that a rented Nissan Altima with Kentucky registration was pulled over in the southbound lanes of I-75 on June 27. Troopers observed criminal indicators and called a Hancock County canine to the scene.
