DUQUESNE, Pa. (KDKA) — The Duquesne Police arrested a man for public intoxication and multiple drug infractions on Friday.
The unidentified male was transported to the Allegheny County Jail and will be facing various charges.
At approximately 8:45 p.m., patrolling officers along Grant Avenue noticed a 33-year-old male from Pittsburgh stumbling down the sidewalk near North Fourth Street.
As the officers approached, the male fled, running through a yard before jumping over a wall. The male was caught and initially arrested for public intoxication. He also had an active arrest warrant for a parole violation.
The suspect was found to have a couple of crack pipes, a snorting straw, burnt spoons, 90 Soma pills (potent muscle relaxer/schedule IV controlled substance), and a small plastic bag of white powder, which is believed to be cocaine.
