Police arrest man on gun, drug charges in Bonniewood

ASHTABULA — City police arrested a 24-year-old man on gun and drug charges after finding heroin and two loaded guns in a Bonniewood apartment.

Police were called to 3103 Glover Drive shortly before noon Thursday to remove an unwanted person from the apartment, according to police reports. Glover Drive is in Bonniewood Estates.

When they arrived on the scene, the resident gave police permission to search the apartment.

Police found a small amount of heroin, a loaded sawed-off shotgun and a loaded 357 magnum revolver stuffed in the couch cushions, police said.

The 24-year-old man, who hailed from Buffalo, N.Y., was arrested and transported to the city jail, police said.

This is the second Bonniewood arrest involving drugs and guns in a week, according to police reports.

Vincent Calvin, 39, has been charged with nine felonies after police raided the  Bonniewood  apartment

he was staying in last Saturday. Police discovered drugs and stolen guns, reports show.

City Solicitor Michael Franklin warns residents possessing, manufacturing, or selling drugs is a “stupid activity,” but in Bonniewood it’s a really bad idea with the elementary campus just down the road. It means persons engaging in this activity will experience enhanced penalties.

In the past 10 days, sometimes with the help of other local law enforcement officers, 17 guns — many reportedly stolen — have been taken off the streets of Ashtabula and Ashtabula Township, police said.
