The OSHP drove the car which has a Michigan license plate into the parking lot of Frantom Sunoco to search the car and interview the suspect. A small safe with a number combination lock was recovered from the car. After showing the locked safe to the man driving the reportedly stolen car the OSHP broke the small safe open with a hammer. Inside the safe were baggies containing what the OSHP believe to be an amount of narcotics to be too large for only personal use. The substance will be tested to confirm if it is a drug.
