Campbell police arrest six on drug charges

Published: Tue, April 8, 2014 @ 11:23 a.m.


City police arrested several people on drug-related charges late Monday; all arrests were the product of traffic stops.

At 5:40 p.m., police stopped 24-year-old Justin A. Nisevich, of Rosehedge Drive in Poland, for failing to stop at the intersection of Jackson Street and Murray Avenue.

Officers immediately noticed a marijuana bud lying by the driver's foot in plain view, then found two additional buds of marijuana stuffed under the center console. Police also seized $83 in cash. Nisevich was charged with possession of drugs and cited for the stop-sign violation.

About an hour later, police stopped a car for speeding on Coitsville Road. The car's passenger — identified as 48-year-old Deloris K. Burgess, of Jefferson Street in Painesville — admitted she had a crack pipe containing crack residue in her shoe; Burgess was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

At 10:40 p.m., police stopped a car on Wilson Avenue for having numerous air fresheners hanging from the rear view mirror. Officers immediately noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from the car, and later found a plastic baggie containing 1.4 grams of marijuana. All four occupants — including three juveniles — were placed under arrest for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

The driver — 18-year-old Anthony Joseph Kearney, of Dean Avenue in Youngstown — was also cited for contributing to the unruliness of delinquency of a child.

All arrested Monday are set to appear in Campbell Municipal Court at 9 a.m. Friday.

How many air fresheners hanging from rear view mirrors is acceptable before it obstructs your view? I've never heard of that reason for probable cause.

Looks like Campbell PD is sketching the truth again. What kind of vision do you need to see into a car when its raining, and see "multiple air fresheners?" And how does that obstruct your view? And how do you arrest all the occupants in the car? This would be easily thrown out of court. They are just causing an inconvenience to innocent people who are in the car. That is not serving and protecting.

I guess the air fresher didn't work to cover the smell of the pot. All these minor little infractions and the headlines don't match. A couple of roaches and the mass overkill created by Vindi is just to funny. How about attending the court Vindi and reporting on the inconvenience for the court.

@JustThink--won't be an inconvenience when you find out it's one of your minor children in a car with an 18 year old driving around with an abundance of air fresheners, although not enough to stop the marijuana smell. People want it both ways. Stop the illegal activity and the cops are wrong. Don't stop illegal activity and cops are wrong.

Do you how much 1.4 grams of weed is? It is absolutely way too funny to think that the entire car-load of people was arrested for 1.4 grams of weed. And how about the 1st guy? He had some marijuana "bud" by his foot. The 2nd lady had a crack pipe in her shoe. The 3rd car got pulled over because of "numerous air fresheners". Sounds like all of these people can possibly fall in the "dumbest people alive" category because none of them seem like they are too smart!! But still....driving with too many airfreshners is a judgement call. I can have 1,000 of them hanging from my car and it's perfectly legal. I'm sure they recognized the car from a previous suspicion and just used that as the perfect excuse. Cops are stupid!

I can't believe how many people are trying to legitimize the small amount of drugs found and the "inconvenience to the courts". The fact of the matter is the drugs are illegal at this time and any amount is unacceptable. If these people want to do drugs I suggest they move to someplace where it is legal, preferably out of this country. Our society has enough druggies, lazy bums, and just plain stupid and ignorant people.

Campbell Police top ten reasons to search my house for drugs.
1. Failed to cut my grass in a straight enough line.
2. My dog crapped on the sidewalk.
3. Left my porch light on to long.
4. Weeds in my garden "looked like marijuana"
5. While grilling a steak it smelled like crack
6. My property taxes are a day late.
7. I was seen buying cold medicine for a cold and "he must be cookin that meth"
8. I don't have a "I support Campbell police" bumper sticker.
9. I left Campbell and bought groceries at Rulli's
10. I am not Greek

boxerlover I didnt say anything about not enforcing the law. But it should be done legally. You cannot make up probable cause to stop a car and there is zero probably cause to arrest each person in the car for the marijuana thats less then a joint. If its found on someone, only that person should be arrested. Violating people rights is just as bad as enforcing the law. Why cant they be like other departments that enforce the law according to law?
