Youth charged with possessing crushed pills, suspected heroin

A 17-year-old youth was arrested early Sunday in the Chippewa entertainment district after police said they found drugs in his possession.

He was observed by police just after 12:30 p.m. at Delaware Avenue and West Chippewa Street holding a bottle of beer, according to a report. He refused officers’ request to empty it out and to produce identification, Northwest District officers reported.

A search of the male yielded two clear plastic baggies containing crushed pills and four glassine baggies containing suspected heroin, police said.

He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.
