Youngstown man charged with drug abuse, concerned about CCW permit


YOUNGSTOWN — Police said a man arrested at 5:50 p.m. Sunday on a drug charge after being found in a South Side gas station parking lot complained the arrest would “ruin my CCW permit.”

Officers arrested Tawuan Green, 22, of North Brockway Avenue, after spotting him in a car at a Market Street and East Myrtle Avenue gas station. Reports said the car caught officers’ attention because it never moved, the people inside never got out and different people would walk up to it and leave, which were signs of drug dealing, reports said.

Police said Green was one of three people and was arrested after police found suspected cocaine on him. Green at first gave police a fake name and said he was worried the arrest would affect his status to apply for a carrying a concealed weapons permit since someone with a felony conviction can't acquire a permit.

Green, however, has warrants from Campbell Municipal Court on felony drug charges. He was taken to the Mahoning County jail.
