Pair arrested on drug charges in Jeannette

| Tuesday, May 24, 2016, 5:21 p.m.

A Jeannette man and a Youngwood woman were charged with drug offenses Monday following a traffic stop in Jeannette by Westmoreland County deputies serving a bench warrant.

Sheriff Jonathan Held said deputies had a warrant for Jeremy Bogle when they found him driving a car on Lowry Avenue. Deputies stopped the car and found crack cocaine and $720 in Bogle's possession during a search. A search under the passenger's seat where Victoria Valerio was riding uncovered marijuana and $420, Held said.

Bogle, 25, and Valerio, 22, were taken to Westmoreland County Prison.

According to court records, an arrest warrant was issued this year after Bogle failed to appear in court for a hearing seeking to revoke his parole on a 2014 drug case. He pleaded guilty to drug offenses and was sentenced to two years in prison.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
