Police: Two contractors brought drugs onto the 911th Air Force Base
Moon police charged two civilian contractors with bringing drugs onto the 911th Air Force Base.
Air Force security officials stopped a white work van after a gate guard smelled what was suspected to be marijuana on Jan. 7.
Inside the van was two empty sandwich bags with the smell of marijuana inside along with a green smoking pipe with burnt marijuana residue, police said.
The driver, Emil Provident, 48, of Lincoln Place, told police the pipe belonged to him. Police charged him with possession of drug paraphernalia. One of the other two men in the van, Robert McGrail, 37, of North Versailles, handed over a marijuana cigarette from his pocket and told police he smoked while on their lunch break before returning to the Air Base to finishing working. Police charged McGrail with possession of marijuana. A third roofing contractor was not charged.
