Three men are facing drug possession charges after a traffic stop for speeding on Route 15 by Connecticut State Police.

The men were stopped around 12:45 a.m., Wednesday, July 24, when troopers spotted the 2018 Chevy Suburban they were in traveling at a high rate of speed northbound on the highway in Milford, said the Connecticut State Police.

During the stop, troopers determined there was marijuana in the vehicle and a search uncovered more than a half-ounce of pot in various places throughout the SUV, state police said.
