WARREN - Police said they found 11 bags of fake crack cocaine on a man who tried to flee from them at 6:37 p.m. Monday on a stolen motorcycle.
Marcus Williams, 19, of Williamsburg Street S.E., was arrested on the charges of receiving stolen property, failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, and counterfeit controlled substances at Niles Road S.E.
Police reports state that an officer heading to a call on Oak Knoll S.E. spotted two motorcycles drive through a stop sign and continue to Woodbine Avenue S.E., where the motorcycles split up. The one driven by Williams went south, police said.
The officer followed Williams south on Woodbine Avenue S.E. Williams repeatedly looked behind him but refused to stop, police said.
During the chase, he drove through a yard where several children were playing, the police report states. The motorcycle crossed Youngstown Road, almost hitting a van, and ran a stop sign at Niles Road and Woodbine Avenue S.E. before the front tire hit a curb and Williams fell off the bike, reports state.
Police ran a records check on the motorcycle, a 2004 Honda CRF 70, and it came back as being stolen, reports state.
At the Trumbull County Jail, corrections officers found 11 bags of what Williams said was fake crack cocaine. Williams told officers he only sold the fake crack to out-of-town people he would never see again.
