Ohio State Highway Patrol officers stopped a driver in Cleveland last night and - well, *lookee* here - discovered an ounce of crack cocaine stashed in his '97 T-Bird.

Marijuana residue in plain view prompted a probable cause search of the vehicle, according to officers.

Willis Bell, 31, was arrested and tossed in Cleveland City Jail on charges of possession of crack cocaine and aggravated drug trafficking, both first-degree felonies. The charges could net him up to 20 years in prison and a $40,000 fine.

The crack, meanwhile, had a street value of $3,000.
