Campbell police charge three with drug offenses following traffic stops

CAMPBELL

City police arrested three people on drug charges — and several additional charges — during two separate traffic stops for speeding Thursday.

At 9:45 a.m., police stopped 21-year-old Randolph Moore, of Hilton Avenue in Youngstown, along with his passenger — identified as 22-year-old Rafael Samaniego, of Fairgreen Avenue in Youngstown — on Wilson Avenue.

Police discovered that Samaniego had an active warrant out of Trumbull County, then searched both men and the car, finding 1.4 grams of suspected heroin, 0.4 grams of suspected crack cocaine, a digital scale and sandwich-style baggies. They also confiscated $817 in cash.

Moore and Samaniego were each charged with possession of heroin, crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia. Moore was also cited for speeding.

Shortly after 7 p.m., police stopped 34-year-old Philip D. DeRobbio, of Melrose Avenue in Boardman, on Coitsville Road.

Police immediately noticed a holster on DeRobbio, along with a loaded magazine rifle protruding from a bag and a rifle case. Items found during a search of the car included two handguns and numerous knives, multiple rounds of live ammunition and spent ammunition, two open alcoholic beverage cans, and two unlabeled pills.

DeRobbio was charged with improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, prescription label required and open container prohibited. He was also cited for speeding.

Actually if Mr Derobbio failed to inform law enforcement when he was stopped that he was a CCW holder then he was in violation of ohio law. Also I THINK you cannot legally possess a firearm, even with a permit, while committing another felony. (Depending on what drugs he was carrying)

I know he was just out hunting rabbits to give to the orphanage so they could eat for the night while enroute to help setup church for the next day services and it wasn't alcohol it was actually water that was TURNED INTO wine for this fine outstanding citizen. I ALWAYS carry my weapons hidden in the car and wear an empty holster I think that the first rule of carrying hide the weapon and wear the holster and ALWAYS bring unbottled pills and drug paraphernalia and make sure you have empty alcohol containers and throw a rifle or two in the car (loaded of course) in the car too. This guy sounds like an idiot.

Bottom line - do stupid things, get caught. Don't want to get caught, don't do stupid things. If you don't want to risk being arrested bc you're dumb enough to drive around town with a cache of guns, drug paraphernalia, and opened beer cans, then don't drive through Campbell. A single hand gun for protection purposes is one thing. A rifle, several guns, drugs ... that's clearly indicative of something else all together. Kudos to the CPD and the new Chief for finally talking a proactive approach to policing. Unbelievable how people will criticize the police for doing their job, but be the first to cry when they need the police or feel like they haven't done enough.

In the first part of the article, they were both charged with the heroin, crack and paraphernalia? How is that possible? it does not say they each had it. That is called false imprisonment and is leaving them open for a lawsuit. If you find drugs on the driver, the passenger cannot be arrested and vice versa. If one has heroin and the other has crack, then you charge each one with the drug they had. You cannot charge both with both drugs. I guess Campbell PD has trouble understanding the law.
