Campbell police use creative scheduling to fight crime

Posted: Updated:

CAMPBELL, Ohio - Increased police patrols during peak hours in the city of Campbell, thanks to innovative scheduling by the interim police chief, leads to more drug arrests.

A routine traffic stop turned into a K-9 pursuit and the arrests of two Youngstown men.

23-year-old Dontrail Burkes, and 26-year-old Derrell Easterly are both charged with drug possession after a large amount of suspected crack-cocaine was found in their car.

Easterly, who was a passenger in the car allegedly tried to make a run for it, but was stopped by Campbell Police canine "Storm."  He also faces an obstruction charge.

Officer Eric Manning, a K-9 handler for Campbell Police says, "It was later learned that there was approximately 10.1-grams of crack-cocaine in a baggie inside the vehicle, along with a little over $1200 between the two suspects."

Interim Police Chief Drew Rauzan has nearly doubled patrols during peak times, due to creative scheduling, and that's led to an increased number of arrests.
