Two men are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers found $600,000 worth of cocaine and heroin inside a car during a traffic stop in Summit County. 

Troopers stopped a 2016 Lincoln Navigator on Interstate 76 around 1 p.m. last Friday for a speed violation. 

A drug-sniffing dog was used on the car after troopers said they observed criminal indicators. 

The canine alerted to the vehicle so troopers searched it, finding the massive amount of drugs.

The driver, Roberto Campas, 28, of Canton, and the passenger, Ernesto Medina, 32, of California, were placed in the Summit County Jail. They were charged with possession of heroin and cocaine and trafficking in drugs. 

If convicted, they could each face up to 30 years in prison.
