Boardman man arrested after police find concealed weapons

Published: Thu, August 13, 2009 @ 1:25 p.m.

BOARDMAN — An Erie Street man faces two charges of carrying concealed weapons — one for a gun, which is a felony, and the other for a knife which is a misdemeanor — among other allegations.

Tony Olds, 28, is charged with trafficking in drugs, unlawful possession of a weapon, cocaine possession and two counts of carrying concealed weapon. He was lodged in the Mahoning County jail.

Early Thursday, police stopped a truck on Mathews Road at South Avenue after seeing the driver fail to use a turn signal.

Police found a knife in Olds’ pants pocket, the handle of a pistol in his crotch and plastic bags containing suspected marijuana and suspected crack cocaine in his waistband, the report said.

Police found the barrel of the gun underneath the vehicle and ammunition under the driver’s seat, the report said.

To All;

Until all of the Mahoning Valley citizens can get together and resolve the ethical barriers that exist...this plague will soon hit all of the burbs as it is now. Everytime I log on I see that Austintown, Boardman, Canfield, Poland, and etc. are facing some serious dilemmas if chnage does not occur.

serious dilemmas.... we need more hand-outs, you folks in the 'burbs don't give enough. You try to make us work for a living, that is serious, why should us urbanites work?

I am in favor a massive concrete wall surrounding the entire city. Give the good citizens plenty of notice to get out and just let all the thugs kill each other...problem solved!
Where is a leader for the black and inner city community of Youngstown?!?! It's only getting worse day by day.

Shaker Heights in Cleveland DID put concrete barriers at the city limits to keep the thugs from driving into their 'burb.
Kind of funny

I have to take issue with the weapons charges;
since when is a knife (I'm assuming it was a "poket knife" since they said it was in his pocket) considered a concealed weapon? If that's the case then the police would have a field day at the Yankee Lake Truck Night and Rodgers Flea Market.
Since the gun handle was in his crotch (Ouch?) but the barrel was under the seat it technically wasn't a "weapon" if it was broken down into pieces.
His lawyer should have a field day with these charges.................. Misdemeanor Possesion? Guilty your honor.
Boardman's Finest must have been bored

Scrooge, Yu have a point. it is npt illegal to have a pocket knife. however it does depend on the size of the blade. 2nd. no there was noting illegal about having a broken down gun. but yes there is a problem with the crack and the pot that was found on this guy. or should i say thug. and yes this cop was probably bored. thats why this town should change its spelling from boardman to boredman. same word diffrent spelling. but boredman fits it more.

Oh yeah, couldn't be Boardman. Only good people live in Boardman. Get real! Boardman just had a different type of thug. The suburbs are home of child preditors, weed selling dairy queen owners, and dope heads, that if they were to stay out of Ytown there wouldn't be anyoe to sell drugs to.

If we would just legalize weed and control the distribution (and tax it) like we do with alcohol, then most of this stupid crime will disappear. I think you have to be a loser to use drugs, but since so many do, why not get a legal handle on the situation?

This guy contributes nothing to society. He's a waste of flesh, just like all the other drug dealers, child molesters, murderers, etc. We can only hope that he and all the other thugs either find help or do themselves in before any innocent people are hurt.

legalization? Wow what a novel idea. but how would the legal system stay busy and crowded if we allowed drugs and prostitution to be legal? after all then the cops and courts would have to prosecute and focus on major criminals like rapists, child molestors, murderers, arsonists etc.....

You can't put up a massive wall around Youngstown to keep the thugs in because they are in every city in America today.

The massive walls were built around our prisons to deal with criminals, but how's that working?
Not very well.

Depending on the government to protect us is not working either. Our police are now limited to writing up and reporting crime after the fact.

The Golden Rule in today's Americana...You are your own protector. Do not expect someone else to do it for you. Be safe, stay alert and be prepared.
