2 Campbell teenagers arrested after chase

Staff report


Two Campbell teenagers remain in the Mahoning County jail after leading police on a chase through the city late Friday.

Samuel M. Horvath of Gladstone Street and Amber M. Kansa of Hyatt Avenue, both 19, are being held without bond until their mandatory appearance in Campbell Municipal Court at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

According to a report, police tried to pull over the car for speeding and for driving without its headlights activated on Gladstone Street at 9:40 p.m. Friday. The car, which was being driven erratically and recklessly by Horvath, according to the report, sped away, swerving in and around other traffic until officers forced it to stop at the intersection of Shirley Road and Center Street.

The two were then arrested, and Kansa told police about the bag of marijuana they’d thrown from the moving car. A police cruiser was damaged in the pursuit.

Horvath and Kansa were both charged with possession of drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with evidence. In addition, Horvath was charged with driving under suspension, assault, speeding and reckless operation, and for failing to comply with police orders, while Kansa was cited for allowing another person to drive her car.
