NEW CASTLE — A McGrath Manor resident has been arrested for allegedly possessing marijuana during a disturbance at Crestview Gardens.

Anthony Thurman, 22, of 821 McGrath Ave., is charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

New Castle police say they were called to the 1100 block of Pin Oak Drive just before midnight Monday in response to a complaint of about 10 people arguing and threats of shooting.

Police questioned two people in a car and one officer saw a plastic tube of suspected marijuana between Thurman’s  legs. Thurman was a backseat passenger in the vehicle.

Both occupants were removed from the car and Thurman was taken into custody and later released.

He will receive a summons by mail.
