Gun found near Youngstown man cited for walking, dancing in the street

Published: Tue, April 29, 2014 @ 10:46 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Police found a stolen, loaded semiautomatic pistol Monday on a South Side street near a man who was cited for walking in the street and obstructing official business.

Officers spotted 18-year-old Marquis Dates of East Dewey Avenue in front of a home in the 100 block of East Avondale Avenue about 7:20 p.m. walking and dancing in the street.

Police stopped him because walking in the street is not allowed unless the sidewalk is not passable. Reports said Dates also gave officers a fake name.

Police also found a loaded .25-caliber handgun near him, but Dates was not charged because they could not link the weapon to him. A records check showed the gun was stolen last year, reports said. Officers took the gun for evidence.

Danikytn, come on....The cops won't actually do ANYTHING if there is more than 1 person involved, basically because they are scared. So, if 1 cop rolls down Gibson, sees 15 people in the streets, then guess what? The cop will turn a blind eye to that situation. Power in numbers down there on southside!! But I wholeheartedly agree with you.

Well run them over and go to your posies hangout. Then you will have a gaggle forcing the police to leave you alone. These idiots do it in Warren also. I think they believe the sidewalk was made for prostitutes, garbage cans and bicycles.
