SHARONVILLE, OH (FOX19) -

An Ohio man is facing felony drug and weapon charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized a pound of hydroponic marijuana, worth nearly $4,500, and a loaded 9mm handgun while assisting a stranded motorist in Hamilton County.

Troopers stopped with a disabled vehicle on southbound Interstate 75 at milepost 16 just after 9 p.m. on Feb. 3.

Upon initial contact with the vehicle, troopers observed a handgun on the front passenger seat and detected an odor of burnt marijuana. A probable cause search revealed a pound of hydroponic marijuana and a loaded 9mm handgun.

The driver, Qualin L. Daniel, 23, of West Chester, was incarcerated in the Hamilton County Justice Center and charged with possession of marijuana, a fifth-degree felony, and possession of weapons under disability, a third-degree felony.

If convicted, he could face up to six years in prison and up to a $12,500 fine.
