Monday, June 11, 2018

YOUNGSTOWN — A Tyrell Avenue man is in the Mahoning County jail on drug charges after reports said he was arrested about 9:40 p.m. while police were answering a gunshot sensor call in the first block of East Avondale Avenue.

Officers saw a car back out of the driveway of a vacant house and the driver, Jerbrail Grihm, 28, jumped out and ran away.

Police caught him after a short foot chase and found two bags of marijuana, a bag of cocaine and $132 cash that he threw on the ground in front of him while he was running, reports said.

Grihm is expected to be arraigned later today in municipal court.
