Medical crews called to GM plant


Medical crews were called Monday afternoon to the General Motors plant in Lordstown for what plant communications manager Tom Mock called an “unresponsive” employee.

Mock said he could not give specific medical details.

The Lordstown Fire Department confirmed it assisted a Med Star ambulance crew on a medical call there. The department got the call at 3:22 p.m.

No other information was available Monday night.

Police confiscate suspected drug


Police confiscated 7.7 grams of suspected marijuana and arrested two men during a traffic stop late Friday.

Both 19-year-old Kevonte L. Jordan, of Woodbine Avenue Southeast, Warren, and 23-year-old Ritchie S. Miller, of Rexford Road, Youngstown, are charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. Police also cited Miller for not having a front license-plate on his car.

In addition to the suspected marijuana, police also seized a hollowed-out pop can that had been used to store the suspected drug and $127 in cash.

Jordan and Miller have a hearing at 9 a.m. today in Campbell Municipal Court.

Driver has nine open suspensions


Police say a woman who ran a red light on the South Side early Sunday morning has nine open suspensions on her license and a total of 25 overall.

Police spotted a car driven by Lisha Marie Roberts, 46, of Youngstown, about 3:50 a.m. at Glenwood and West Indianola avenues and tried to pull her over.

Police reports said she was driving at a high speed. Roberts told police she had no driver’s license and was only driving 65 mph, reports said.

The speed limit for that stretch of road is 35 mph, however.

Police cited Roberts for driving under suspension, running a red light and reckless operation. She was released at the scene, but her car was towed.
