Responding to a report Thursday morning of people inside a Jeep egging cars on Lisbon Street, officers checked the area and failed to find the vehicle. A St. Clair Township officer then spotted it at Giant Eagle in Calcutta, and it was stopped on state Route 170, where an empty egg carton was reportedly found in the back of the vehicle. Robert B. Griffin, 21, Oak Street, and Sydney C. Halfhill, 18, Highland Drive, were both charged with three counts of criminal mischief, with charges also to be filed in Juvenile Court against two juveniles, all of whom admitted egging cars, according to reports. A four person in the car was not charged after police learned she had just been picked up from work and was not involved. Vehicles owned by Heather Potts, Angela S. Muschweck and Brian E. Sayre were reported egged.
An officer reported seeing Thane J. Byers, 23, Harvey Avenue inside a vehicle that had been driven onto the Heights Manor complex. Knowing Byers was on the no trespass list at the housing complex, the officer followed the vehicle to an apartment and arrested him for criminal trespass.
Shawn M. Jacobs, 30, Richardson Avenue, was charged Monday with possession of drug paraphernalia and improper display after an officer reported seeing him leave a known drug location on Ogden Street in a vehicle. The license plate of the vehicle was expired, and it was stopped. While being inventoried for towing, the vehicle was reportedly found to contain twisted panty hose and a steak knife with white residue in the passenger door. In the console, officers reported finding two crack pipes, three used syringes, an ink pen with residue and other drug-related items. In the driver's side door, they reported finding two empty heroin packets with used cotton balls.
