Man found with over $100,000 charged with possession of heroin

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A Youngstown man is charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin after two separate incidents in the township involving the smell of marijuana and the seizure of heroin and hundreds of thousands of dollars.

On February 13, police found baggies of marijuana and $111,000 worth of money separated by rubber bands in $1,000 bundles in a rental car being driven by Andre M. Little, 27.

Little and his two passengers denied ownership of the money, were each issued citations for possesion of marijuana and released on scene.

Four nights later on February 17 at 11:00 p.m., police were called to the Days Inn Motel in Boardman where Little previously told them he had rented a room.

A hotel manager reported a marijuana smell coming from a room at the motel. After several attempts by police and the manager to contact occupants in the room, the manager evicted the occupants, per hotel policy, and granted police entrance to the room using a master key.

Police found a plastic bag containing 1,726.2 grams of heroin and a large, undetermined amount of money bundled in $1,000 increments.

Two hours later, Little attempted to enter the motel room where police had seized the drugs and money and was arrested along with a female companion.

A search warrant issued that same morning uncovered a laptop computer and two Moneygram orders to a car rental agency.

Little, who has a history of heroin possesion in Mahoning County, is currently in custody of the Mahoning County Jail and due back in court March 15.
