Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant Kay Perkins says a man is awaiting charges to be filed by the Noble County Prosecutor after an incident Monday evening.

Perkins says an patrolman pulled over a female driver on Interstate 77 around six p.m. for going about 30 mph over the speed limit. She says when the patrolman approached the vehicle, he saw the female driver hand an object to the male passenger. After pulling both individuals out of the car separately, Perkins says the patrolmen found a loaded handgun in the car. She says a further search of the car lead to the discovery of marijuana and some pills.

The female driver was released but the male passenger is being held at the Noble County Jail.
