Troopers seized 142 grams of heroin from two Michigan men in Ohio. 

On April 17, troopers stopped a rented 2016 Chevrolet Cruze with Texas registration for a turn signal violation on the Ohio Turnpike in Ottawa County.

Police say a probable cause search revealed the heroin, which has a street value of $25,276. 

Suspects Demarco Johnson, 27, of Westfield, and Demetrius Cassity, 23, of Detroit, were charged with possession and trafficking in heroin, both first-degree felonies.

Both men were incarcerated in the Ottawa County Jail.
