ALLIANCE, Ohio (WKBN) – Police used Facebook to ask people to stop calling and texting the cell phone of an alleged drug suspect Tuesday night.
According to the Alliance Police Department, officers arrested Steve Notman after they say they caught Notman selling crystal meth on video. He was accused of selling the drug at home with his three-week-old daughter nearby.
The Facebook post asked people to stop calling and texting Notman’s phone, saying the suspect is “all out of drugs for tonight” and that “customers don’t need to call, police will come to them soon enough.”
The department’s post also called his ringtone “terrible.”
Notman was arrested Wednesday night on West Harrison when police swarmed the house. They say he wouldn’t put his hands behind his back and then tried to run away.
Notman was charged with drug trafficking, endangering children, resisting arrest, obstructing official business, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He remained in jail after a Wednesday morning court hearing, in which he pleaded not guilty to the charges and bond was set at $250,000.
Notman returns to court next Friday.
