Carnegie police looking for man on numerous charges

| Thursday, May 24, 2007

A Carnegie man accused of leading police on a chase this morning with a 13-month-old girl in his car is being sought on nine different charges, police said.

Officers tried to stop Lorenzo Omar Stanley, 25, for a red light violation at about 3 a.m. on East Man Street but Stanley drove off, Carnegie police said. He abandoned his car a short time later in the parking lot of the Carnegie Towers. Stanley ran into the apartment building, but officers were unable to find him, police said.

As officers approached the car to talk to a female passenger, they discovered her 13-month-old daughter inside, Carnegie police Chief Jeff Harbin said.

The female told police she yelled for Stanley to pull over during the pursuit, Harbin said. She was not charged, he said. The officers also found a 9-mm TEC9 semiautomatic handgun inside the car, police said.

Stanley is wanted two counts of reckless endangerment, and firearms and traffic offenses. He also is wanted on outstanding warrants for reckless endangerment, possession of marijuana and traffic violations.

Stanely is known to frequent Carnegie and numerous Pittsburgh neighborhoods, police said.

Anyone with information can call Carnegie police at 412-279-6911 or 412-276-4245.
