Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 123 pounds worth of marijuana during a traffic stop in central Ohio.

According to OSHP, the approximately $615,000 in weed was seized after troopers stopped a 2014 Subaru with a Colorado registration on Jan. 13.

Troopers used a drug-sniffing K-9 to find the pot.

Kelly Harding, 47, and Craig Voigt, 46, both from Colorado, were both taken to jail and charged with felony possession and trafficking in marijuana.

If convicted, the men could face up to 16 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
