YOUNGSTOWN Police conduct 2 drug raids, arrest 6 on various charges



Published: Sun, February 9, 2003 @ 12:00 a.m.



The raids were made on Truesdale and Fairgreen avenues.

YOUNGSTOWN -- Police said they interrupted drug dealers in the act of preparing their products in two drug-house raids late Friday.

Spencer Pagan, 25, of Leo Street, and Linwood Muldrow, 22, of Rigby Street, were at the stove making suspected crack cocaine when police arrived at 327 S. Truesdale Ave. just after 5 p.m., said Lt. William Powell, city police vice squad commander and deputy director of the Mahoning Valley Drug Task Force.

The suspects broke a beaker of suspected cocaine they were cooking, and police found suspected cocaine drying on a kitchen counter top and in a kitchen drawer, Powell said. Also recovered were several small bags of suspected crack and a sawed-off shotgun with five live rounds. The two men were charged with having weapons after felony convictions, trafficking in cocaine, and manufacturing crack cocaine. Pagan also was charged with drug abuse-marijuana.

Second raid

Arrested in a raid at 7 p.m. at 708 Fairgreen Ave. were William Fleeton, 24, of Toledo, charged with drug abuse-cocaine, trafficking in marijuana, and having a weapon after a felony conviction; James Black, 19, of Ridley Avenue, aggravated trafficking in cocaine; Lebron Bunkley, 24, of East Ravenwood Avenue, having a weapon after a felony conviction, drug abuse-cocaine and trafficking in marijuana; and Steven Phillips, 32, of Worthington Street, trafficking in cocaine and marijuana and possessing drug paraphernalia.

When police arrived, Fleeton and Bunkley were seated at the kitchen table measuring and cutting up a bag of suspected marijuana into smaller bags, with a loaded handgun on the table in front of each man, Powell said. Several bags of suspected crack cocaine were on the kitchen table, Powell said.

Police also found four handguns and $2,000 in cash there, he added.
