Troopers: Canned goods include hash butter


What could have passed as the contents of a homemade holiday gift box of goodies turned out to be $103,000 worth of hashish and marijuana, according to the Ohio Highway Patrol. A Trooper brought in a drug-sniffing dog after pulling over a car on Interstate 70 in Preble County for a marked lanes violation earlier this week. The K9 let the trooper to what looked like a bottle of wine and several jars of canned goods. According to the patrol, those “goods” were actually more than 3 pounds of hash butter, nearly 40 ounces of hash oil and 45 grams of marijuana. The driver, Nicholas Nowak, 29, of Southington, Conn., was booked into the Preble County Jail on charges of possession of solid and liquid hashish, and possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree. If convicted, the patrol says Nowak could face up to 17 years in prison and up to a $32,500 fine.   Despite saying they will pull request to build, TJX HomeGoods distribution center in Lordstown is buying property near to the site where they initially planned to build.   The Lordstown Local School District says it wants trespassing charges filed against a woman they say was operating for a right-wing investigative group called Project Veritas.   An Akron woman is under arrest after being caught up in the continuing crackdown on human trafficking in Austintown.  A Youngstown State University professor who was scheduled to be sentenced this week for attempted assault has been cleared of the charge.  West Branch schools are joining a couple of other local school districts that have beefed-up security to help ensure that intruders are kept out of school buildings.
