Police use tear gas to nab suspect



Published: Tue, January 4, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



YOUNGSTOWN -- The Violent Crime Task Force was forced to use tear gas Monday to flush out a suspect from a vacant home at 357 W. Warren Ave. on the city's South Side.

Youngstown police were told that 37-year-old Roderick Gray of Youngstown, who was wanted on a drug trafficking warrant, was at the home.

Youngstown Police Lt. Robin Lees said Gray refused to open the front door, forcing officers to break down the door.

Two women, who were found on the house's second floor, were removed from the home as task force members searched the third floor and attic.

Police had ordered the suspect, who was hiding in a crawl space and believed to be armed, to surrender.

Police said that when Gray did not give himself up, tear gas was used to apprehend him. Gray was taken to the Mahoning County jail. No gun was found.

Authorities said that Gray may be questioned in additional crimes.
