On Wednesday, February 14th, at 1:30 in the morning, a Marshall County Deputy was in the area of U.S. 30 and Elm Road sitting stationary when a Chrysler 300 began approaching at a high rate of speed. The Deputy activated his rear-facing radar and locked in the vehicle’s speed at 92 in a posted 60-mile-per-hour zone.

Marshall County Deputy Devin Johnson caught up with the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop.

The driver was identified as 33-year-old Ece Ozen of Fort Wayne. She was found to be in possession of a large quantity of marijuana and suspected prescription medications without proper labeling and a container.

Ece Ozen was booked into the Marshall County Jail for possession of a legend drug as a level 6 felony, and possession of marijuana as a class a misdemeanor with a cash bond of $1,500.
