Campbell police arrest seven on drug charges after traffic stops

Published: Tue, April 15, 2014 @ 11:43 a.m.


City police arrested seven men on felony drug charges in just as many hours late Monday and early today.

At about 4 p.m. Monday, police stopped a car driven by Demetrius Alan Lockett, 28, of Glenwood Avenue in Youngstown, on 12th Street for having objects hanging from his rear view mirror.

Police learned that Lockett’s driver’s license had been suspended and searched both him and his car. In total, police found 140 pills, 2.8 grams of suspected heroin, 3.1 grams of suspected cocaine, and $83 in cash on Lockett. Lockett is set to appear in Campbell Municipal Court on the following charges: felony possession of drugs, misdemeanor possession of drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, prescription label required, illegal conveyance of prohibited items and tampering with evidence, along with the traffic offenses.

An hour later, police stopped a car driven by Sean Orlando Cornwell, 38, of Harold Lane in Campbell, for driving through a stop sign on Coitsville Road; Cornwell also was found to have a suspended driver’s license, and was cited for the offense. He is set to appear in court Friday. Both Cornwell and his passenger — identified as Irvin E. Caraway, 34, of Wendy Place in Cortland — were searched. Police found 1.6 grams of suspected cocaine and $380 in cash on Caraway, who was charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

At 6:25 p.m. Monday, police stopped a car driven by Ricki Hill, 59, of Willis Avenue in Youngstown, for failing to use a turn signal on Murray Avenue. Hill consented to a search of him and his car, which produced 1.6 grams of jerkin and $653 in cash. He was charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, as well as the traffic offense.

At 12:35 a.m. today, police stopped a car without a rear license plate light traveling on McCartney Road, and immediately noticed the car’s passengers making furtive movements. A search of the car and its four occupants produced a loaded 9mm handgun, 0.2 grams of suspected crack cocaine and a marijuana grinder.

All four — 22-year-old Daniel Stanley Ho Sang, of Stewart Avenue in Youngstown; 24-year-old Jeremy Pruitt, of Plazaview Court in Youngstown; 25-year-old Isiah Anthony Patterson, of McBride Street in Youngstown; and 26-year-old Jasper W. Wells, of Struthers Liberty Road in Campbell — were charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. Sang was also cited for carrying concealed weapons and the lack of a rear license plate light.

I keep telling these people, do not drive around with these types of things in their car.

They never learn.

Maybe that's why they get caught in the first place.

Jerkin may, may, have something to do with crystal meth. Or, Ricki may have rough, chapped hands from working all day and they caught him with 1.6g of Jergen's he lifted from the Rite-Aid. Whatever. A wise man once said "stupid is as stupid does".

For those of you that think CPD is the 2nd coming of the DEA, believe you me....this is the work of a RAT! This is the work of someone, who is selling to someone, and there is an informant who is making money off of these guys, while ratting out the smaller dealers that run around with jerkin in the car. This isn't "crafty police work".....This is the work of an informant, who has bigger and better reasons to turn these punks in. The bigger drug dealer doesn't want to kill these kids for encroaching on his territory because that makes too much noise. Therefore there is a system of ratting them out. Once they get in the car, they get caught. It's not a coincidence that close to 10 people have been pulled over with drugs in the car in Campbell the past 2 weeks. Heck, there wasn't a total of 10 people in all of 2013 that got pulled over with drugs in the car. This is the new and improved way to keep a drug territory yours. Just befriend the cops, throw a $100 bill their way every once in a while, and then the smaller dealers get plucked off the streets in their cars.
