Reid

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your Affiant is Patrolman Dean Bortner of the Newberry Township Police Department. On 03/22/2017, I was on duty, in issued uniform, operating a marked patrol unit.

At approximately 2200 hours, this Officer was traveling east on York Haven Rd., behind a white Infiniti. While traveling on York Haven Rd., I observed the Infiniti swerve onto and over the fog line four different times. I activated my emergency lights and siren to stop the vehicle at York Haven Rd., and Cly Rd. The Infiniti did not have a license plate displayed.

Upon contact with the operator, I immediately noticed that his eyes were blood shot. The operator was identified by Oregon drivers license as Cody Reid. While speaking with Mr. Reid his movements were very slow and lethargic. I questioned him about alcohol consumption and he stated that he had not drank anything. I questioned him on when the last time he smoked marijuana was and he stated 2 hours ago. He stated that he smoked a water bong by himself and took 2 hits. At this point he was directed from the vehicle to perform field sobriety tests.

Field sobriety tests were administered which yielded clues of drug impairment, which rendered him incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle. He was placed under arrest for DUI.

I transported Mr. Reid to York Central Booking, where I read the DL-26 implied consent form verbatim to Mr. Reid. Mr. Reid agreed to submit to a chemical test of blood. At 2320 hours Phlebotomist Jalyssa Caban, withdrew two tubes of blood from Mr. Reids right arm. Tubes were sealed in our presence to be sent to NMS labs for analysis.

Cody Reid is an out of state operator and resides in the state of Oregon.

At approximately 0115hrs, police were notified by Penn Dot Staff that a vehicle was on its side in the area of Valley Rd., and Pines Rd. Police arrived on scene and the operator Blaine Smith was outside of the vehicle. Blaine Smith was identified by PA drivers license 29530676. The photo matched the driver. Mr. Smith advised police that he was coming from the Falls Hotel Bar when he hit a snow bank and flipped the vehicle.

While I was speaking with Mr. Smith I immediately detected the odor of alcohol coming Mr. Smith’s breath and person. I then asked Mr. Smith how much he has had to drink tonight, to which he admitted to consuming five alcoholic beverages. I then asked Mr. Smith to submit to Field Sobriety Test which he agreed. Field Sobriety Tests were administered which yielded clues of impairment.

Based upon Mr. Smith’s driving behavior and field coordination tests, I came to the belief that he had imbibed in a quantity of alcoholic beverages which rendered him incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle. He was placed under arrest for DUI.

Mr. Smith was transported to York Central Booking where I read the DL-26 chemical test warnings verbatim. Mr. Smith agreed to submit to chemical testing.

Selander

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your affiant is a sworn officer employed by the Newberry Township Police Department and is currently assigned to the patrol division as a patrol officer

(2) On February 24 2017 at approximately 1330 hours this officer observed a vehicle traveling eastbound on Old Trail Rd at Pines Rd. The vehicle’s inspection appeared to be expired with a 2016 sticker displayed. After passing the vehicle, I turned my patrol unit around in an attempt to conduct a traffic stop. The vehicle turned left onto Pines Rd. and proceeded a short distance until making a left turn onto Maple Hill Dr. Prior to the intersection of Hillside Ln., I activated my emergency lights. The vehicle, identified as a white Pontiac G6 (PA JTW-4412). pulled to the right side of the roadway prior to Hillside Ln.

(2) After notifying York County Communication of the traffic stop, I approached the driver side of the vehicle and observed a white male driver. I identified myself and explained to the driver that he was being recorded by audio and visual means. I asked the male for his drivers license, proof of insurance and registration card. The male provided the paperwork and his Pennsylvania drivers license which identified him as David Elray Selander of 110 N York St., apartment A1, Etters, PA 17319.

(3) During this time, I observed that the male appeared very nervous due to his shaking hands and his tone of voice. Selander’s pupils were very constricted and both eyes were very red and glassy. I advised Selander that he was stopped due to an expired inspection which I observed as 2/16. I obtained Selander’s information and responded to my patrol vehicle. I then responded back to Selanders’s vehicle. I asked Selander if he had been consuming alcohol or if he had taken any illegal or prescription medications. Selander stated that he did not consume any medications or illegal drugs. He reported that he worked at Walmart overnight and did not sleep on this date. Selander stated that he turned onto Maple Hill Dr. to travel to Walmart. I advised Selander that he could not travel to Walmart by using Maple Hill Dr. Selander stated that he thought the roadway was connected to the road at Walmart.

(4) I then requested Selander to exit the vehicle to perform several field sobriety tests. Selander was reluctant to exit the vehicle and started to manipulate his right hand around his right jean pocket. During this time, I observed a gray or silver device that had the appearance of a pen or a marker fall out of his right pocket between the driver seat and center console. I asked Selander if he had any weapons on his person. He replied no and was searched. No weapons were found on his person. I walked with Selander approximately twenty feet to Hillside Ln. which was a level surface. I then moved my patrol vehicle to Hillside Ln. to obtain the video recording. I again reminded Selander that he was being recorded by audio and visual means. Selander did not have glasses and stated that he was not wearing contact lenses. He reported to this officer that he did not have any physical problems that would prevent him from performing the tests. The tests provided yielded clues of impairment to include lack of balance and failure to complete the tests as instructed and demonstrated. Selander was placed under arrest for DUI.
A preliminary breath test was provided to Selander. The result of the PBT reading was .000%

I searched Selander and located a cellular phone in his right front pocket. Due to having difficulty, Selander was permitted to remove the items from his left pocket. Selander removed a clear baggie that contained a white substance. Also removed from the left pocket was a small amount of a metal fabric and a lighter. Selander reported that the white substance is crack cocaine. He reported that he used the metal fabric as a filter for smoking. The items were secured and placed into unit-45. He was then placed into unit-45. Selander gave permission to this officer to have his vehicle searched. While conducting a search of the interior, I located two small clear baggies that contained a white substance and a pen sized, silver metal pipe that contained burnt residue on one end. These items were packaged and placed into unit-45.

Sgt. Ditty arrived on scene to assist this officer. While in the rear of unit-45, Sgt. Ditty provided Selander his Miranda Rights. I was present with Sgt. Ditty while he questioned Selander. He admitted to smoking crack cocaine on this date at approximately 0300 hours. Selander also admitted that he smoked marijuana the previous date.
At 1426 hrs. Selander was transported to York Memorial Hospital where he consented to a blood draw, (1442 hrs. arrived at Memorial). I read the DL-26 Implied Consent for to Selander. He agreed to the blood draw and signed the form. At 1450 hrs, I witnessed Heather Smith draw blood from the right arm of Selander and package the sample to be sent to NMS Labs for analysis. Selander was then transported to the York County Booking Center for processing.
The white granular substance was field tested at NTPD. The test yielded positive signs for cocaine. The contents were packaged and placed into evidence on 02-24-17. PSP lab sheet completed for analysis.

On March 6 2017 this officer received the Toxicology report from NMS Labs. The report was completed and signed by Edward J. Barbieri, Ph.D. Forensic Toxicologist on March 6 2017 at 1218 hours. The blood results reflected that David Elray Selander’s blood contained 11-Hydroxy Delta-9 THC 1.4 ng/mL, Delta-9 Carboxy THC 70 ng/mL, Delta-9 THC 7.8 ng/mL, Cocaine 69 ng/mL, Benzoylecgonine 2400 ng/mL

The lead vehicle was a red suv traveling at an approximate speed of 30 mph., in a clearly posted 40 mph. I observed the red suv swerve over the double yellow line and the fog line multiple times. As we were approaching Pines Rd., and Valley Rd., I observed the red suv’s left brake light was out. The red suv made a right onto Kister St., and I attempted to pull the vehicle over in front of the Goldsboro Post Office. The vehicle continued to drive approximately 500 feet and then stopped.

I then stated so no drinking tonight? Which Mr. Wentz stated no just headed in, I just woke up. While speaking with Mr. Wentz I observed his red blood shot eyes, also seemed extremely nervous. I followed up by asking Mr. Wentz if he had smoked weed in the last twenty four hours and to be honest. Mr. Wentz then admitted he smoked a bowl around 5pm when he woke up and then fell back asleep.

A short time later, I returned to the vehicle and requested Mr. Wentz take part in Standardized Field Sobriety tests. While Mr.Wentz was exiting the vehicle I asked if there were any drugs in the car. It was at this time Mr. Wentz stated yes and the passenger retrieved a bag of marijuana along with drug paraphernalia in the form of a pipe from the gloved box.

Field sobriety tests were administered which yielded clues of drug impairment, which rendered him incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle. Bejamin Wentz was placed under arrest for DUI.

Shaver

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On 02-15-2017 at around 2100 hours I was on scene for an active EMS call at 980 Cly Road. While in the driveway of 980 Cly Road, I observed a vehicle traveling north west on Cly Road at a high rate of speed. As I was standing along the roadway the vehicle passed by me, I observed this vehicle to be covered in mud. I was not able to see inside of the vehicle due to the mud on the windows. Upon catching up to this vehicle I also observed the wheels to be sticking outside of the wheel well. I then initiated a traffic stop in the parking lot of Antonio’s Pizza in Goldsboro, at the corner of Cly Road and Water Street. This vehicle was an older Jeep bearing PA registration KDR0954. This vehicle was registered to Joshua Shaver.

Upon making contact with the driver of the vehicle, he was identified as Joshua Shaver, by his Pennsylvania driver’s license. Shaver was a single occupant in the vehicle. Shaver had a difficult time finding the documents I had requested. I could also detect an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the inside of the vehicle. Upon asking Shaver, he admitted to having three beers on this night. He advised he was coming from the Fall’s Hotel, a bar located on Cly Road. While speaking with Shaver I noticed his speech was slurred, also his eyes were blood shot and glassy. I then had Shaver step out of the vehicle so I could perform field sobriety tests on him. During field sobriety, Shaver showed multiple signs of impairment.

Shaver was then arrested for DUI. Handcuffs were placed behind his back, double locked and checked for tightness. Shaver was placed in the rear of patrol car 44. Shaver was then transported to the York County Booking Center. Once at the booking center, Shaver was escorted into the blood draw room. Shaver was read a revised DL-26 form, this conversation was recorded and available for future reference. Shaver consented to a blood draw. At 2203 hours Jalyssa Caban, a vascular access tech, drew blood from Shaver’s arm. Two tubes of blood were drawn in my presence. This blood was boxed and sealed which will be sent to NMS Labs for testing.

On 02/27/2017 I received the blood results from NMS Labs for Joshua Shaver. This blood was tested by Donna Papsun, a forensic toxicologist, at NMS Labs. At the time of the blood draw, Shaver had the following compounds in his system:

Ethanol – 106 mg
BAC – 0.106 g
Delta-9 Carboxy THC 36 ng
Delta-9 THC 2.9 ng
Benzoylecgonine 99 ng

Based upon the above information which I believe is true and correct, I respectfully request that Joshua Shaver answer to the charges I have brought.

Schaffer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On 01/22/2017 I was working patrol in full uniform and in marked patrol unit number fourty-four. At 1822 hours I was dispatched to Rutter’s 2215 Old Trail Rd. for a male that is passing out behind the wheel of his vehicle.

Upon arrival I was waived down by the complaint, Janette Loudon, who advised me the male was still in his vehicle passing out. I pulled up behind a maroon Pontiac Torrent bearing PA registration JSP5155. The Pontiac was running and had its rear lights on. The Pontiac was parked so that the two driver’s side tires were over the parking spot line and in the other parking spot.

I approached the Pontiac on the driver’s side and saw a white male in the driver’s seat. I noticed the male’s eyes started to close and then fully shut like he had fallen asleep. I knocked on the window and the male jumped and stated I had scared him. I advised the male who I was and that everything was being recorded. I asked the male for his driver’s license to which he provided it to me. The male was identified as Jacob H. Schaffer by his PA driver’s license photo (28398636). While speaking with Mr. Schaffer I noticed he was sweating profusely and had blood shot eyes. I asked Mr. Schaffer if he had anything to drink tonight and he advised he did not. I then asked Mr. Schaffer if he did any drugs and he advised he did not. I was then advised by Sgt. Bosco there was marijuana in the front passenger seat of the Pontiac. I then asked Mr. Schaffer again if he smoked any marijuana and he advised yes he did, about an hour or two ago. I then had Mr. Schaffer get out of the Pontiac but before he did so he turned off the Pontiac and threw the keys on the dashboard. I asked Mr. Schaffer if he would do field sobriety tests for me and he advised he would.

I then had Mr. Schaffer perform field sobriety tests. During the field sobriety tests Mr. Schaffer continued to say he had only smoked marijuana. While Mr. Schaffer was completing field sobriety tests he had body tremors. Mr. Schaffer showed signs of being highly impaired and incapable of operating a motor vehicle safely. I then had Mr. Schaffer put his hands behind his back and advised him he was under arrest for DUI. I then put Mr. Schaffer in the rear passenger side of my vehicle number fourty-four (44).

At 1846 hours I transported Mr. Schaffer to Memorial hospital. At 1900 hours I arrived at Memorial Hospital. I read the DL-26 form to Mr. Schaffer and asked him to submit to chemical testing. Mr. Schaffer advised he would submit to chemical testing. Phlebotmist Michelle Wheeler drew two vials of Mr. Schaffer’s blood from his right arm at 1921 hours.
