MADISON COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH) — A Utah man faces up to 11 years in prison after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers say they seized 11 pounds of cocaine from his car in Madison County.
On August 6 around 1:44 p.m., troopers stopped a Toyota Camry, driven by 23-year old Oscar M. Martinez-Gomez, for speeding on I-70 in Madison County.

OSP says the street value is $125,000.
Martinez-Gomez is being held in the Tri-County Jail on a charge of felony possession.
In addition to prison time, the suspect also faces a fine of $20,000.
