Youngstown pair arrested in Boardman on drug charges


BOARDMAN — A 29-year-old Youngstown woman was arrested by Boardman Police on Tuesday on multiple charges including receiving stolen property, a fifth-degree felony.

Tina Torres of East Myrtle Avenue is also charged with drug abuse of a schedule I or II substance, illegal use or possession of drug paraphernalia and on a warrant for failing to appear in Boardman court on a theft charge.

Also charged in the incident is William Prokop, 42, of Thalia Avenue in Youngstown.

He is charged with possession of crack cocaine, receiving stolen property and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police received a tip that a man and a woman at the Town and Country Motel on Market Street had a stolen credit card.

When police approached the man and woman, identified as Prokop and Torres, Prokop allegedly put the credit card in the bushes.

Police removed a glass crack pipe with residue from Prokop's pocket and detained him because he refused to comply with police, according to a police report.

Police asked Torres if there was anything illegal in the motel room. She told police there wasn't, but police saw another crack pipe in plain view.

She admitted to police there was another crack pipe in the room that belonged to her. Police found the pipe and a plastic bag with less than one gram of crack cocaine and a burnt spoon, according to a police report.

Police found the stolen credit card in the bushes. The woman it belonged to told police Torres was her daughter and she had stolen her card and made unauthorized purchases of $919.

Court dates for Torres and Prokop have not been set.
