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.
