CAMBRIDGE, OH (WCMH) — Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed felony drug charges against a North Carolina woman after a traffic stop where they seized 110 pounds of heroin and methamphetamine.

Troopers say the drugs are valued at approximately $3,700,000.

On May 9 at 10:30am, troopers stopped a rented truck for following another vehicle too closely on Interstate 70 near milepost 173. The Patrol says “criminal indicators were observed” and a drug-sniffing dog alerted to the possible presence of drugs in the vehicle.

The driver, 27-year-old Ashley Tramonte of Marion, North Carolina, was incarcerated and charged with two first-degree felonies: possession of a controlled substance and trafficking in drugs. 

If convicted, she could face up to 20 years in prison and up to a $40,000 fine.
