Canine assisted the Portsmouth Municipal Court Probation Department with a visit of the apartment of probationer, 44-year-old Stacy Ann Young, located at 2409 C 17th St. Portsmouth, Ohio. Young also had an outstanding warrant for her arrest that had been issued by Portsmouth Municipal Court.
Young was apprehended and during a search of her apartment, officers seized three handguns, more than $4,000 cash, digital scales, approximately 12 grams of suspected crystal meth and 19 grams of an unknown powder.
56-year-old Troy Samuels of 14th St. Portsmouth, Ohio and 42-year-old Corey Demetrius Pullings of Dayton, Ohio were arrested and charged with Having a Weapon While Under Disability, a felony of the third degree. 45-year-old Rebecca Donnelle Dennison of Wayne Avenue Portsmouth was also arrested on an outstanding warrant that had been issued by Portsmouth Municipal Court.
