HERMITAGE 4 more face drug charges as result of raid on house
HERMITAGE, Pa. -- Police said they have filed drug charges against three more adults and will petition a 17-year-old boy to juvenile court after a raid on a North Keel Ridge Road home.
Police went to the home last Wednesday to serve an arrest warrant for violation of a protection from abuse court order and spotted a man in the house smoking what appeared to be marijuana. They said they could smell the drug.
They got a search warrant, returned to the house and arrested the occupant, Aubrey J. Grose, 24, of 975 N. Keel Ridge Road, on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. A second man, David A. Cashier Jr., 22, of Hazen Road, Sharpsville, was arrested at the scene and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of the painkiller OxyContin without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were later freed on bond.
Charges of possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia were later filed against Aaron J. Johnson, 23, of Madeline Street, Sharpsville, Paul V. Dzaja, 25, of North Keel Ridge Road, and Travis J. Miniea, 18, of Grandview Drive, West Middlesex.
All three will be sent a summons from District Justice Henry Russo to appear for arraignment, police said.
The juvenile will be petitioned to court on the same charges, police said.
