A Greensburg man has been charged with trying to take drug-free urine into the Westmoreland County Courthouse.

Tarrence Raheem Burns, 20, admitted to taking the urine to the courthouse for a friend who was on probation, county park police said in an affidavit.

Patrolman Frank Tempo said he became suspicious of Burns at the entrance. He ran a security wand over Burns' left leg about 1:50 p.m. Nov. 20 and detected an object.

He instructed Burns to hand over the item, which was a white bottle containing urine, according to the affidavit.

Burns said he was asked to urinate into the bottle by another friend, police said.

Greensburg District Judge James Alberts' office sent Burns a notice about the charge of furnishing drug-free urine.

A preliminary hearing date has not been scheduled.
