Troopers Say They Found Gift-wrapped Drugs, Ohio State troopers discovered gift-wrapped marijuana during a traffic stop in western Ohio on Monday.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said troopers stopped a Chevrolet Cruze on Interstate 70 in Clark County around 1:20 p.m. for driving under suspension.

The car was rented, but the renter wasn’t in the vehicle. The rental company requested that it be towed. Troopers said while taking an administrative inventory of the car, they found drug paraphernalia in the glove compartment. That gave troopers probable cause to search the car.

According to the highway patrol, there were more drug-related items in the trunk and even a gift-wrapped box containing 25 packages of marijuana.

Troopers arrested the driver, Robert Gomez, 35, of Washington. He was charged with trafficking, possession of marijuana and driving under suspension. Gomez was taken to the Clark County Jail and couple face up to 21 years in prison, if convicted.
