East Liverpool Police Reports

While watching a suspected drug house on College Street Monday evening, Capt. Patrick Wright observed several people come out and get into a vehicle which was pulled away then turned onto East Fifth without a turn signal. The vehicle was stopped as it headed northbound onto state Route 11, when Wright was joined by other officers. All three reported smelling marijuana coming from the vehicle, and the front seat passenger, Terrence Adams of Akron, was asked if they had been smoking weed, to which he replied “A while ago.” The passengers were identified except for one man, who gave the name Eddie Hitchcock and a Social Security number that was registered to a female. It was determined the man was actually Malik D. Corbin, 23, of Akron, who had outstanding felony warrants from Hamilton Summit counties for trafficking in heroin, possession of heroin, three counts of aggravated possession of drugs, carrying a concealed weapon, weapons while under disability and receiving stolen property. Corbin was placed into a patrol car and the other occupants were also removed from the vehicle, which was searched. A clear plastic bag of 30 acetaminophen/hydrocodone pills, a bag containing white and brown rock-like substances, numerous clear plastic bags and latex gloves officers said are consistent with packaging narcotics were found. The driver, Ta-neeshia Burt, no age listed, Canton, told officers the items belonged to her. Corbin was taken into custody and transported to the county jail for extradition on the outstanding warrants. The evidence gathered from the vehicle will be sent for testing and results will be presented to the grand jury for possible indictments.

A man not named in reports told police he was playing with his dog in the yard on College Street Monday morning when someone shot at him from bushes up the hill. Officers searched the area but found no one.

Officers responded Tuesday to Green Lane for a report of a man and woman fighting but they said it was a verbal argument. They were advised to keep it down because they were disturbing the neighbors.
