Summit County deputy sheriff arrested on charges of marijuana possession

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A Summit County Deputy Sheriff is expected to be arraigned in court today after police found two bags of marijuana in his possession Saturday in Youngstown.

Chief Deputy Darrell Joy, 41, was pulled over Saturday on E Dewey Ave. after police noticed he did not have a front license plate. Upon inspection, police found a small bag of marijuana in Joy's pocket on his dress shirt.  Joy, who had been reportedly off of duty for over a year according to Summit County officials, said he had taken the bag from a kid earlier that day. 

While arresting Joy, police found another large bag of marijuana in his pocket. Joy said he had forgotten about the other pocket and said that he found both bags on the ground and took them so children would not get to them. He said he planned to destroy them.

Joy was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana. He is expected to be arraigned sometime this morning.
