LISBON - In Columbiana County Municipal Court on Friday a July 11 preliminary hearing was set for Lee A. Webb, 53, East Fourth Street, Salem, charged with having weapons while under a disability after he allegedly had a shotgun in a bedroom closet when a search warrant was served by the Columbiana County Drug Task Force on Tuesday.
Webb has a previous drug trafficking conviction in the county, which in turn makes possession of a firearm illegal for Webb.
During his hearing on Friday, Webb asked Frost for a lesser bond so he could make arrangements to move out of his apartment, which he said he was just in the process of moving into. Bond was set at $100,000 cash or surety, the amount requested by County Prosecutor Robert Herron.
Matthew R. McBride, 31, North Walnut Street, East Palestine, pleaded no contest to assault after reportedly pushing a child off a bicycle and causing the child to injure his left arm on Tuesday. Court documents state the child rode through McBride's yard. Sentencing was set for July 25.
Tyler P. Fisher, 28, Weirton, W.Va., was fined $300, he was required 40 hours community service, had his license suspended for six months and was credited with one day served in jail for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance for alprazolam.
