A Windham man is among three people facing felony drug charges in Ohio after state troopers seized three pounds of high potency marijuana during a traffic stop Jan. 2.

Will P. Clark, 20, and Aaron S. Gile, 19, of Gorham, were charged with complicity, a third-degree felony, after a state trooper pulled over a 2001 Volvo driven by Gile for following another vehicle too closely. They were pulled over on the Ohio Turnpike in Lucas County, near Toledo. After the stop, the occupants of both vehicles admitted they were traveling together, according to Lt. Tony Bradshaw of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

In the other vehicle, a 2003 Toyota Sequoia, which was pulled over for a registration violation, troopers found three pounds of “BC Bud” marijuana after a drug-sniffing dog was alerted to both vehicles, said Bradshaw. The driver of the truck, Charles L. Clark, 24, of Bozeman, Mont., was charged with possession of drugs and trafficking in drugs, both third-degree felonies.

The suspects were taken to the Lucas County Jail, where Will Clark remains, according to the Lucas County Records Division. Gile was released on bail Monday. If convicted, Clark and Gile could face up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, BC Bud marijuana is one of the most potent strains, and is usually cultivated in British Columbia, Canada.
