Wanted Allegheny Co. man arrested after traffic stop in Indiana
An Allegheny County man wanted on a parole violation was arrested Tuesday night in Indiana after a traffic stop led to the discovery of numerous drugs in his vehicle, authorities said.
Indiana Patrolman Thomas Dessell said Ronald Wade, 27, of Braddock, was stopped after he failed to stop his car at a stop sign at the intersection of Locust and South 13th streets. Police said Wade, who originally gave a false name, was carrying 20 stamp bags of heroin and 7 grams of marijuana on his person.
Dessell said Wade was found to have an outstanding warrant in Allegheny County for a parole violation for attempted homicide and other charges. He left a halfway house and failed to return, Dessell said.
Wade was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a small amount of marijuana and false identification to law enforcement. He was arraigned before District Judge Jennifer Rega, of Blairsville, and placed in the Indiana County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bond. He faces a preliminary hearing before Rega on Tuesday.
A passenger in the vehicle, Anthony Harris, of Pittsburgh, faces a charge of hindering apprehension of a fugitive.
