Published: Sun, December 5, 2010 @ 1:50 a.m.


Police officers serving a search warrant on a South Side residence Friday found the man they were looking for, plus lots of drugs and flat-screen televisions.

Officers found Leon J. Whatley, 37, of 618 W. Prince-

ton Ave., in his bathroom flushing something down the toilet, his hands wet and pills in the bottom of the toilet, when officers broke into the home at 3:20 p.m. Friday.

Officers also found a prescription pill bottle containing a baggie of crack cocaine and a baggie of heroin. A white powder was seen around the toilet and bathtub, police said.

A further search revealed three surveillance cameras, fortified front door, drug paraphernalia, other pills, several digital scales, marijuana grinder, baggies of marijuana, and eight flat-screen TVs valued at between $1,000 and $2,500 each.

Police recorded the serial numbers of the TVs.

Whatley was charged with a variety of drug offenses and taken to the Mahoning County jail.

The hood is abuzz and aflutter
The shout of police came without a stutter
They were the grinch
It was a cinch
This was the hood
It was understood
The law when they showed
Forced life in the hood to be slowed

Finally, the police chief & mayor are doing something that will actually curtail crime. Much better than stopping over a thousand cars to get 59 DUS...
