Berea traffic stop results in drug charges

RICHMOND — Daniel Crowe, 35, of Tyner, and Charles Turner, 42, of McKee, were charged with multiple drug offenses and operating on suspended licenses July 9 after Crowe was stopped for reckless driving, according to a news release from the Berea Police Department.

Officers conducting a traffic stop discovered Crowe’s driver’s license was suspended. Crowe consented to the officers searching his vehicle where they reported finding a small amount of marijuana and a plastic tube with white powder inside it, the release stated.

During the traffic stop, Turner approached the area in his own vehicle and motioned for one of the officers. Turner said he was a friend of Crowe’s and wanted to know why he was being stopped, according to the report.

Officers checked Turner’s license and discovered it also was suspended. Turner gave the officers permission to search his vehicle, where they reported finding a grinder and a marijuana cigarette, the police report stated.

Crowe was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and operating on a suspended license.

Turner was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and operating on a suspended license.

Man faces DUI, drug charges

Adam Sniff, 27, of Berea, was charged with a number of drug-related offenses Friday after officers were called to Walmart to investigate a shoplifting complaint.

According to the release, when the officers arrived at Walmart, Sniff left the area in a vehicle. However, officers located him in the Taco Bell parking lot.

The release stated officers searched Sniff’s vehicle and reported finding a prescription bottle for Clonazepam with another person’s name in it. The bottle had been filled the day before, but only 70 pills were still in the bottle. One Oxycodone pill also was in the bottle, the police report stated.

Sniff said the prescription was for his girlfriend, and he had picked it up because she was in jail, according to the report.

After an investigation, the officers discovered Sniff had allegedly stolen the Oxycodone pill, the report added.

Sniff was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, third-degree trafficking of a controlled substance, prescription controlled substance not in a proper container and theft of a controlled substance as well as several traffic offenses.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the Berea Police Department at 986-8456.
