Drug and Fugitive Arrest

On Friday, December 23, 2011, at approximately 2151 hours, Ptlm. R.S. Fritz of the Martinsburg Police Department stopped 3 subjects in the area of John Street and Kentucky Ave that matched the description of suspects in an armed robbery that occurred in the 300 block of South Rosemont Ave.  The subjects were not involved in the robbery, but while conducting a pat down, Francisco Villansana-Escobedo admitted to having crack cocaine in his possession.  Francisco Villansana-Escobedo was found to be in possession of 2 baggies of suspected crack cocaine with a total weight of approximately 5 grams.  Francisco Villansana-Escobedo was arrested and charged with possession with intent to deliver crack cocaine.

        In addition, a second subject, Nelson Casiano Rivera, was arrested as a fugitive from justice.  Rivera initially gave Ptlm. Fritz a false name, but after finding out his real name, an NCIC hit confirmed that he was wanted out of York County PA for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.  Both subjects were transported to Eastern Regional Jail to await arraignment.
