Campbell police arrest man on drug charges



Published: Mon, April 7, 2014 @ 12:08 p.m.

CAMPBELL

City police arrested a 37-year-old Youngstown man on charges of possessing drugs and drug paraphernalia late Sunday.

Police stopped Andre L. Harmon, of Verona Avenue, on McCartney Road for having just one functioning headlight at 11:15 p.m. Sunday. When officers approached the car, they noticed Harmon making several furtive movements, like reaching under the steering wheel area. His hand was also shaking, though he denied having anything illegal in the car or on him, and gave police consent to search both.

Police found a small, ripped baggie containing marijuana residue, along with a baggie containing 4.6 grams of suspected marijuana.

Harmon was charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, and also cited for the headlights. He is set to appear in Campbell Municipal Court at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Another big marijuana bust in Campbell. I'll say it again, this cost more than the effort it takes for search, paperwork, court and fines gained. Then again what kind of person rides around with it in their car.

Campbell police are useless. Way to go now we get to pay $85 a day to incarcerate a guy for having pot. Hurray!

Campbell PD has found a way to keep the trafficking down in Campbell. If a cop has "reasonable suspicion" your in possesion of something illegal. They can search a vehicle. Though illegal search and seizure laws help protect the average citizen. The cost to hire a lawyer and prove the case outweighs the cost of paying a fine and getting a reduced sentence.

Heck 4.6 grams is just over a tenth of an ounce of pot. You can't even make a good joint with that!

evio, a pothead isn't going to shoot anybody, steal your car, or wife for that matter, or run around engaging in major criminal activities. So based on the low cost of $85/day, how much is police officer making for appearing in court (usually overtime pay for court appearances by police officers,) time tying up court for a fine (Ohio says anything up to 4 oz in one container is a misdemeanor with a fine up to $100,) how much time did the officer spend on this 4.6 grams, (1 oz=27 grams,) and the young man is more than likely not a criminal, but now he has a misdemeanor record. I'm sure helping him to become a productive person. All these the last couple of weeks involving marijuana except one have been users of marijuana. If your looking to end the trafficking problem in Campbell, attacking potheads isn't going to do it. You might want to start with the traffickers. Take a kid like this and dump his pot on the ground, and scare the crap out of him.

Here's a novel idea for all of the Monday morning quarterbacks -- instead of sitting around on message boards, chomping at the bit to criticize and denigrate the CPD, why don't you actually do something productive? If you don't like how something is being done, do something to change it instead of hiding behind a keyboard, spitting vitriole and citing useless/baseless facts.

@Billdog.

A MINOR misdemeanor in the state of Ohio is a max fine of $150. And you're right. Let's not enforce any laws that you see as trivial. We'll take a poll of the city and see which laws the citizens do want and do not want enforced. Let's throw that book called the Ohio Revised Code out the window.

It's not about the kid with the small bag of marijuana. It's about sending a message that laws will be enforced in Campbell. They haven't been in a long time under the previous chief well Campbell finally has a chief that wants to work. Let them work. And as far as the kid goes maybe he should've made a better decision about driving around with marijuana in his vehicle. Maybe he IS the trafficker and that was all that was left after his deliveries. Boohoo for him that he has a record. Make better decisions in life.
