Warren police charge man with drug possession
Robert E. West Jr., 33, of Central Parkway Avenue Southeast, was arraigned today on two counts of felony drug possession after being arrested Friday afternoon in the Highland Homes apartment complex on Lane Drive Southwest.
Two Warren officers working the Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority complex at 6:06 p.m. when they observed West getting out of a car. Officers were aware that West had a suspended driver’s license.
While talking to West, an officer observed a baggie with a white powder in the pocket of his hooded sweatshirt and handcuffed him.
Officers removed the suspected crack cocaine and also found other suspected drugs in the vehicle and confiscated $344 in cash.
A not-guilty plea was entered for West to the charges, and a personal-recognizance bond was issued for him, meaning he didn’t have to pay anything to be released from jail.
