Deputy's home raided; guns, drug equipment seized



Published: Fri, April 3, 2009 @ 6:20 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A Mahoning County sheriff’s deputy has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of a departmental internal affairs investigation after police raided her residence and said they seized drug paraphernalia and guns.

Deputy Angela Eaddy, who was hired by the county in April 2000, was immediately placed on leave after police raided her residence at 56 Garfield St. on the city’s South Side on Tuesday afternoon, Sheriff Randall A. Wellington said.

Eaddy’s most recent assignment was road patrol, the sheriff said Friday. Police reports showed no criminal charges arising from the raid as of Friday.

The search warrant for the 2 1/2-story wooden house was issued by Judge Robert Milich of Youngstown Municipal Court.

Now let me ask a few questions here first is why is she put on PAID leave?? She was found with paraphernalia.....and guns. It doesn't say if they were registered but probably not since that mentioned it in this article. Then it says NO criminal charges arising from the raid......are you serious. But let them come into a regular person's house and find that.....they are off to jail. I would like Mayor Jay to answer why are the officers that are getting into trouble get off so easily?? Shouldn't they get a harder sentence they are supposed to honor and serve and she might have been serving people in youngstown.... this place is amazing

It has been known for a long time that the cops always have the best drugs. They steal them during traffic stops and searhes of homes, they only report finding 1/2 if any.

Oh Henry....another Police hater issuing blanket statements. This area has some of the best and most professional officers around. Some bad eggs, yes, but they are being weeded out. How many times are we not made aware of charges due to an investigation not being completed. Some of you just want to be so quick to use the "blue wall of silence" argument when that clearly is not at work here. If it was, you wouldn't be reading about a raid conducted on a Deputy's house. I just had to deal with YPD two days ago after someones pitbull got loose, came in my driveway, tried to attack my dog, and bit me in the process. I will tell you he responded quickly and was nothing but professional. SIDE NOTE: If you are going to have aggressive dogs in Youngstown, please be careful with them and make sure if they get loose you try to find them before they kill a child or something.

Nicely sugarcoated Rokscout. ---> bad eggs.
If you think that a drug and gun dealing "police officer" is just a bad egg, then you must be a liberal, welfare recipient champion like 'worried'.

I am here to tell you that if a pitbull came in my yard and attacked my dog, the pit bull would be dead.

Oh far from it sir,
Can't stand the liberal, welfare champions that are running roughshod all over the city. I am pointing out the fact that we have many good officers in this area and I will not sit back and let them all be labeled as "bad" because of a few bad ones. If she is guilty then by all means fire, prosecute, and make an example of her. Please don't start this Police bashing that is becoming so popular around this country right now. I agree that Officers should be held to a higher standard, and if they commit an offense like selling drugs and guns or blatant brutality then they should face serious charges. For the record I am a hard working, patriotic, law abiding citizen that just left the military after ten years and two tours in Iraq and came home to growing chaos.

I apologize to you. And THANK YOU.

14Rokscout(310 comments)posted 5 years, 5 months ago

No apologies needed, just a miscommunication as happens when talking in text. I just really respect the good Officers and am saddened this morning seeing that three Pittsburgh Police Officers have given their lives serving their community and just want to protect their honor in times when other Officers do things to tarnish it. Take care and good day!

I don't know the officer or anyone else involved. Now, please let me point out a few things about the disciplinary process. If a political subdivision wants to get rid of a crooked or bad officer, it must be done properly, no matter how distasteful the arcane process may be. Since the accused is "innocent until proven guilty" and must receive "due process of law", suspending them without pay is not a viable option if the political subdivision hopes to win in the long run. We can't have an alleged crook working, however - so they are suspended with pay pending their disciplinary hearing, trial, or whatever. That is aggravating and expensive. But not as expensive as having some arbitrator reinstate them to their job and grant them back pay plus damages when they sue. Take your time, do a thorough investigation, give them all their entitlement to "rights" and then permanently remove them from public office after the process runs its course. If possible, indict them and work for a conviction and jail time. But do it right! Make it stick! It is the only way. Too many mistakes are made in these public official cases and no corners should be cut. We must remove crooks from positions of trust. Cops cannot be criminals, and criminals cannot be cops!!

HERE WE GO MORE CRAP ABOUT COPS! YES THERE ARE SOME BAD APPLES OUT THERE,BUT NOT ALL! THERE ARE A LOT OF GOOD OFFICERS THAT WORK FOR THE MCSO AND MAKE NO MONEY SINCE THEY ARE RECENT HIRES MAKING ONLY LESS THAN 12.00HR WORKING THE THE COUNTY JAIL HOUSING PEOPLE THAT WE CITIZENS DO WANT TO DEAL WITH. THEY RISK THEIR LIVES DEALING WITH THE WORST OF THE WORST AND ARE STILL HONORABLE PEOPLE DOING HTE RIGHT THING EVEN WHEN THEY STRUGGLE TO PROVIDE FOR THEIR FAMILIES DOING THE RIGHT THING! SO, WHEN YOU SEE A YPD COP OR AN MCSO DEPUTY THEY ARE THE PEOPLE THAT RUN TOWARDS DANGER WHEN MOST OF US ARE RUNNING AWAY OR HIDDING FOR OUR LIVES. SO PLEASE DO NOT BE QUICK ON THE LIP TO JUDGE ALL OFFICERS FOR A FEW

Well my comment isn't against officers in general. Its just I don't understand youngstown rules or laws I came from a smaller town before I moved here and its crazy we have police officers getting a paid leave for being found with drugs and guns in her house.....it makes no sense. Then on a completely different story but goes along with people not getting the "right" punishment. We have 2 men out on house arrest (but have been seen driving aroun) on murder charges. There was a witness but now all of a sudden the witness changes his story. Youngstown has the worst justice system I've ever seen.

YOUNGSTOWNPUNISHER - great post. So many are quick to judge of the 'high-paid' police & fire, when in reality, starting safety forces barely make more than minimum wage. The recent posting about Youngstown Firefighter testing displayed a starting wage of $10 per hour! Would most risk their life for that? No. There are always some bad apples, but the majority are public servants doing a job to protect total strangers. We should hold our safety forces in the same regard as our brave soldiers who fight for our country, not disrespect them as most choose to do in our area.

I am glad to see people supporting the hard working honest safety forces in our area. We can not go down the path some of the other parts of our country are with this "cop bashing" and what not.

I don't think you will find one honest cop in any department who supports keeping crooked or marginal police officers in their departments. One of the first modules of instruction in the Basic Police Academy is Ethics, and I believe the majority of officers subscribe to the tenets of the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics. A newspaper reoprter once told me something that makes sense if you think about it. The fact that a story is even in the paper in a prominent place is because it is extra-ordinary, that is to say NEWS. They don't write about ALL the airplanes that land at the airport - they write about the ONE that crashed.

In other words, the norm is honest, hard working cops. The abberation that makes headlines is the story of those who do not belong in the police service in the first place. So to condemn all cops is ridiculous and counter to any logical way of thinking, so I dismiss the ranters who over generalize about ANY topic, especially law enforcement.

That said, there is no room for tolerance of those who dishonor the badge. They must be investigated, charged, tried, convicted, fired and sentenced. That takes a lot of effort and expense, but to take the easy way out by letting things slide is always worse. Vigilance by citizens (like the ones commenting on this blog) and by news outlets will prevent such incidents from being swept under the rug. A community will get the kind of law enforcement it deserves.

When standards are relaxed suddenly you have none. When deterioration of standards continues then at some point someone will have to enforce the enforcers. We recently had a YPD officer whose two sons were breaking into houses. If he couldn't keep his own two kids straight what control would he excercise on public criminals? Is the code of silence protecting the tainted ones?

Worried is all in a tizzy over how bad Youngstown's 'justice system' is! Isn't aware that the system operates under the same guidelines and laws set at the state and federal level. Worried also wants the cop punished NOW. There's something called a labor agreement, and in that I'm sure it says paid leave until after a trial. And, best of all, a new springtime love affair is blooming between HenryVII and RoKscout. I love how forums such as these are run by emotion, not logic and reason and facts.
And really, considering what they're up against, Ytown has a pretty decent police force.
