Heroin and cocaine

AKRON – Two men are facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 6 kilos of heroin and a half pound of cocaine, worth approximately $600,000 following a traffic stop in Summit County.

Troopers stopped a 2016 Lincoln Navigator, with Michigan registration, for a speed violation on Interstate 76, near milepost 21, at 12:59 p.m., on June 24. Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed the contraband.

The driver, Roberto Campas, 28, of Canton, Ohio, and passenger, Ernesto Medina, 32, of Bell, Calf., were incarcerated in the Summit County Jail and charged with possession of heroin and cocaine and, aggravated trafficking in drugs, all first-degree felonies.

If convicted, each could face up to 30 years in prison and up to a $60,000 fine.
