Deputies find pot in car Uptown; 2 arrested

| Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2012

Two men were arrested on Wednesday morning when Allegheny County sheriff's deputies stopped their vehicle on the Boulevard of the Allies and found what Sheriff William P. Mullen called "a large amount" of marijuana.

Alexander Maiullo, 24, of Mt. Lebanon, and Kevin Arenth, 19, of Plum, are believed to have been under the influence of an unknown substance. Authorities said the men barely could stand when they got out of the car, which was pulled over near UPMC Mercy hospital, Uptown. Deputies stopped the car after spotting it traveling erratically during the morning rush hour, Mullen said.

Arenth, who was driving, gave deputies permission to search the vehicle, Mullen said. Deputies found pills, the marijuana and about $1,000 in cash, sheriff's Lt. Jack Kearney said.

The two were taken to Allegheny County Jail to be processed on a variety of charges, Mullen said.
