Alleged Bath Salt Sellers Stopped in Kane
According to court papers at about 4:15 Sunday afternoon Mount Jewett Police Chief Steve Hale called Kane police to tell them about a vehicle that was broken down at the intersection of Greeves and Yarnell streets, and the two people involved may have bath salts with them.
Kane Police Officer Michael Henry noticed a “roach” on the passenger side of the vehicle and soon he, Hale and State Police Corporal Ted Race searched the vehicle and found a scale with measuring bowl, several loaded hypodermic needles, a grinder with a white powdery residue in it, several small plastic bags for packaging, glass smoking apparatuses, and several pills that they could not identify during the search.
Lori Lee Grotzinger of St. Marys and Scott Yanak of Moon Township are facing a number of drug charges. Yanak is also charged with flight to avoid apprehension, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for running from police while they were doing field sobriety tests on Grotzinger. Grotzinger is in McKean County Jail on $40,000 bail.
