youngstown ohio drug arrests

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown Police arrested a man and a woman who were riding in a car together Sunday evening, charging that there were drugs and alcohol as well as a child in the vehicle.

According to jail and police records, police charged Lori Marshall, 38, with possessing drug abuse instruments, drug paraphernalia and endangering children, and Michael Williams, 31, with drug possession, drug paraphernalia, and cited him for having an open container in a motor vehicle.

A police report states that around 10 p.m., a YPD officer pulled over the car that the two were driving in because it did not have a license plate. Police took Marshall into custody because they had a warrant for her arrest, from a previous incident, on charges of possession of drug abuse instruments and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police told Williams to get out of the car so they could get a look at what was inside. They found a bottle of liquor, as well as a handgun on Williams’ person, which they said was not properly carried, according to the report. Upon arriving at the Mahoning County jail, another officer searched Williams and found that he was hiding cocaine, marijuana, heroin and Suboxone in a plastic bag inside his boxer shorts, the report states.

A message left at a number listed for Marshall on the police report was not immediately returned.
