Drug arrest
AUSTINTOWN -- Police arrested a Youngstown man Wednesday after finding prescription drugs that weren't in his name in a pickup truck he was driving.
Police charged John Buggs, 67, of Woodland Avenue, with possession of a dangerous drug and having expired registration. Buggs also was wanted on a warrant in Liberty for failing to appear in court on traffic charges, and he was turned over to Liberty police.
Reports state that Buggs was driving a truck that was pulled over around 3:45 p.m. on North Raccoon Road near Mahoning Avenue for having expired registration and no rear-view mirror. Police arrested Buggs and searched the truck after discovering that he was wanted on the warrant in Liberty.
A bottle of Claritin D prescribed to "Franklin," a bottle of Augmentin prescribed to "Nakisha Townsend" and a sample pack of Viagra were found in a backpack next to where Buggs had been sitting in the truck.

The legal alcohol limit is .10.
Robert J. Dominguez, 35, of Market Street, North Lima, who crashed his Suzuki Sidekick on I-680 early Sept. 3, had a BAC of .357, according to his arrest report.
The BAC results came from tests at the hospital.
Dominguez is also charged with driving under suspension.

Car-theft suspect
YOUNGSTOWN -- A man holding down a 15-year-old car-theft suspect surrounded by a crowd was what police saw when they arrived in the 2200 block of Cordova Avenue late Wednesday night.
The Atkinson Avenue boy, a ninth-grader at The Rayen School, faces charges of grand theft auto, possession of criminal tools, resisting arrest, carrying a concealed weapon and curfew violation. His book bag contained five screwdrivers, a 10-inch hunting knife and locking pliers.
A witness told police the boy had been driving a 1983 Chevrolet Celebrity, which had its steering column peeled so that it would start without a key.
At one point, the boy left the car running, and when he returned, he was confronted by the owner, who held him for police.
Once handcuffed, the boy took off running and was found hiding in bushes next to a garage in the 2200 block of Elm Street.
