Man arraigned on gun, drug charges after arrest in Mill Creek Park

YOUNGSTOWN — Alonzo Daniels, no address or age given, was arraigned today in Youngstown Municipal Court on drug and gun charges.

Judge Carla Baldwin set his bond at $20,000.

Mill Creek MetroParks Police found a loaded .380-caliber handgun, a bag of crack cocaine, a bag of methamphetamine and a bag of marijuana in Daniel's possession after a Saturday night traffic stop.

Reports said a park police officer pulled over a car about 10:20 p.m. driven by Daniels in the parking lot of Pioneer Pavilion for driving without a headlight.

The car smelled heavily of marijuana, and Daniels has a suspended license, so officers searched the car before it was towed and found the gun and drugs in a backpack, reports said.

Daniels told police the gun and drugs belonged to his girlfriend, reports said.

Daniels faces charges of possession of cocaine, possession of drugs and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle as well as a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.
