Township police made several drug-related arrests over the weekend.

In one case, a 15-year-old Austintown girl faces multiple felony charges on allegations of selling drugs at Southern Park Mall.

Nyeree Bunn is charged with four felony counts of drug trafficking and misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia after she was arrested Friday, according to a police report.

Police reportedly found pills, substances that field-tested positive as heroin and cocaine, and other items in her purse after she and two other people were stopped in a mall parking lot.

Tyron Scott, 18, of Youngstown is charged with felony tampering with evidence and misdemeanor counts of drug possession and obstructing official business in the same incident. Police seized marijuana and $4,444 in cash found on his person, according to the report.

The third person was not charged.

Police arrested another person suspected of drug dealing Sunday night during a traffic stop on Lemoyne Avenue near Thalia Avenue, according to a police report.

Brandi Sinkfield, 31, of Kent is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and drug trafficking after police reportedly found 1.8 grams of suspected crack cocaine separated into several bags on her person.

Police on Saturday arrested a man on charges related to a drug overdose last month.

Kenneth Dunegan, 60, of Glenwood Avenue was arrested on warrants charging him with possession of drugs, drug paraphernalia and drug-abuse instruments.

Dunegan was found unresponsive at his apartment Dec. 22, according to a police report. Responders revived him with Narcan, an antidote that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.

Police found suspected heroin, a hypodermic needle and a burnt spoon at the scene, according to a police report.

Also over the weekend, police arrested a Canfield man on his second impaired-driving charge within a week.

Michael James Fisher, 61, of Hunters Woods Boulevard was arrested Friday on Market Street. He is charged with a marked-lanes violation, obstructing official business in the purported disposal of part of a urine sample, and operating a vehicle while impaired.

Police discovered that Fisher has been arrested on similar charges numerous times in the past, according to a police report. He has one prior OVI conviction and is facing another OVI charge after he was arrested by the Ohio State Highway Patrol on Dec. 27.
