I'm 8 months pregnant so I have my one kid with me everyday, but my other 3 come to visit every so often since I work in a jail and it's not the most family friendly environment. 😁

My kids aren’t allowed at my husbands office (He handles insurance claims). And I am a dog sitter so they would basically be doing what they do after school, play with dogs. So, they went to school

Chrysten has spent days in my library than many of our patrons. She's in school, I'm at work. But she will start her mandated High School volunteering soon enough.

Mine is grown,but I wouldn't turn down a take your parent to work day! Should we start a trend ? Is it catered? 😉

Jessica you look very nice and them two others are ok too😂😂

Everyone can contribute to a safer Ohio by dialing #677 to report impaired drivers, drugged drivers, distracted driving and drug activity. ...

Problem is I dont use my phone while driving. Pau attention to the road.

OSHP are the elite law enforcement in Ohio. I have the utmost respect for these men and women who risk their lives every day, for the safety of the public.

This happens everyday on the Ohio Turnpike, OSHP puts their lives on the line every second of everyday to protect other drivers.

Knowing exactly where you are is a great help ie. I-70 westbound milepost 46.

The signs on the highway read..impaired drivers call #677...Always makes me chuckle thinking how mny impaired driver call that number. No disrespect meant. Love the highway patrol.

Want about a someone going way over the speed limit? See it every morning on 270

Wouldn't this entail someone texting on their phone while driving? This wasn't thought out to well...

how about all those who drive like there is no tomorrow weaving in and out of traffic on double yellow lines on two lanes...is that considered a reason to call i have seen so many near accidents passing on curves you do not know in the daytime what is beyond i have pulled over on the berm to avoid one that almost hit another on the other side head on

Don't work me and a couple of cars got run off the rd on 475 to hwy 24 followed all the way to Indiana and never seen a cop and we went about 50 miles till the state line

I love Trump america ! Our law enforcement has really cracked down since we got rid of Obama.

Finally found some actual drugs!

Lethal dose of Fentanyl is 3 milligrams. So there is enough in this photo to kill 36,666 people ☠️

Another awesome bust by the OSP. Great job troopers. Get all their dope.

Finally something other than marijuana.

Drugs are that prolific in our society now’ I wonder what would happen if you could stop every car? The bloke sitting on the bus next to me right now’ reeks of marijuana. I hate the smell of the vile substance.

Great job getting that crap off the streets.

OUTSTANDING work OSHP Troopers. Your diligence in enforcing traffic violations are turning up drugs for further processing and/or sale. Keep up with your diligence. Thank you. And be safe.

Can't even begin to imagine how many lives were saved by this Highway Patrol traffic stop thank you troops.

Nice bust Troopers,keep them coming.Thank you for your service and dedication.Prayers to stay safe!

Great job you all saved alot of peoples life

Way to go OSHP!! Stay safe out there!!🙏🏻❤️

Good work Troopers another job well done. Be safe

Anyone know when they have the auctions for these vehicles these Clowns that get Trafficking

Well done OSP !! No doubt lives were saved because of this pinch........as for the perp(s).....life sentence w/o parole !!!

Someone's dying relative suffered so people can get high and tie up our emergency crews. Fentanyl is stupid. People that do fentanyl for fun are even dumber.

Awesome!!!! That is a fantastic victory! That and cocaine, heroin, opiates!!!! Lost a lot people due to that!!

Please be cautious an careful great job 💯💯❤️

Good job Ohio, glad you caught them. From Alabama.

Great job Troopers , as usual.

Those criminals need to be dealt with in a manner which will make future criminals think twice before attempting to break the law in such a way...

Hang em high for all to see

They should be charged with attempted murder

All they would have to do is stop the pharmaceutical companies and wouldn't have opioid problem at all

Wonder how many ohioans this would of killed suspect should be shot on the side of the road left there like trash eaten by cayotes

Still haven't gotten an answer to my question. The idea of distracted driving IS a very important one, that being said, how is it not distracted driving for the officer? The person who while driving,is glancing at a giant computer monitor below and to his right. Which obviously distracts them from the road in front of them. Not trying to be a smarty pants,I'm just curious.

It's so simple...Just pay attention to where you're going...

Is that a gto with a ls2? What junkuard is that in?

When will they ever learn! Keep pushing OSP!

Someone ran a stop sign and almost hit me today on my way to work 🤦🏼‍♀️. That happens way more often than it should. Thankfully I haven’t been hit yet and I know to watch the intersections, but it’s been close a few times.

Marked lane violation?

That’ll buff out ...

Keep it up Troopers,love to see the tears flow. Thank you and stay safe.

The reason this pot is 4650.00 a pound, is because the troopers found it to be laced with ( stupidity) ( self entitlement) and ( ignorance) ! Wether you think it's good or bad, it's still illegal for now ! Keep up the good work Troopers ! Thank you for your service!

I love it when these Potheads cry. If you don't like the laws here leave. Marijuana is still Illegal here.

Some serious whining on this thread... It's still illegal folks.. Keep up the good work.

sad yes, they are doing their job, but seeing arrests for it, lives ruined and others, that use it for medical reasons going without...

Ohio State Troopers !!! Super job once again!!! So happy you are on the highway protecting the citizens!!!!

... Cigarettes the BIGGEST MASS MURDERER on Earth. Oh, but their legal. Cops use them. That's all I need to know about the law. ...

Great stop troops...keep this dope out of our state

Criminal indicators? Like arresting someone over a plant that does no harm?

You know, if I were carrying 14 pounds of pot, I'd likely have stayed in my lane and obeyed all other traffic laws, as well. But that's just me, I guess. (And give the dog a high 5 for me.)

$5000 a pound you sure It was marijuana and not gold ..... I could care less either way but why is it that I never see bust for the drugs that are really killing people I never see it on here why

Why was this 14 pounds of cannabis worth $65,000? And the 6 pounds you found yesterday worth $17,094? Things that make ya go hmmm 🤔

Nice! Now if the court would hold up it's end and keep these kinds of people in prison longer that would help.

Need to decriminalize and legalize these great plants that can help people...wonder why Big Pharma pays to keep it illegal..its cheap and it works..two things they hate... need to crack down more on Drugs that are actually dangerous ya know...ones that kill you..Heroin,opiods, fentanyl...etc. smh the bs and lies about weed are so stupid...

I love the state highway patrol, but in ohio, marijuana pretty much has a set price. Please, explain to me how when troopers found 6 pounds it was worth $17,094, but when they find 14 pounds its worth $65,000?

Sweet. Nice job OSP. Keep conficating that weed and taking there vehicles. Maybe one day they will learn that trafficking is Illegal to.

My cousin is a Police Officer 2 weeks ago he arrested a motorist for doing 35 in a 60 mph speed zone. He had a 1/2 oz on him with 1 half burnt in the ash tray so you will never convince me it's not dangerous.

Do you guys want a gold star? A cookie? Ahhh no, you guys want a special brownie! A salute and special brownie to OSHP. You guys hold my HIGHEST regard 😂😂😊😊

Another tremendous success story . Congratulations officer and thank you for keeping our highways safe..

Texting while driving? possible probable cause for lane violation. Criminal indicators observed...strong odor of weed, nervous , glassy eyed, slurred speech, etc...they never learn. good training for K9..like fish in a barrel.....good job trooper!! nice diversity in your activity..

Way to go OSHP another job well done. It's very entertaining to see all the potheads whining about a job well done though. Lol

Keep popping them it's still illegal. Good job.

Who's going to call the police in you for being thieves? Great job, Gestapos. Way to "just do your jobs."

How many heroin dealers have you busted this week? We aren't whining because they busted someone trafficking, we are whining because their focus is misplaced. How about catching the real murderers out there instead pushing something that will actually kill you? Looks like a misuse of labor

there's enough people on the highways and on our streets that can't read English or tell what the signs are all we need is a pothead don't get mad that on the freeway is 70 miles an hour and they think they're doing 70 when they're actually doing 35 40 having a good old time looking out the windows at the building street lights and whatever anything shiny really catches their attention
