Man faces drug charges after Neshannock crash

NEW CASTLE — A man whose vehicle crashed into several cars on Preston Motors’ lot is now facing drug charges.

Neshannock Township police said Albert J. Mangino, 23, of 322 E. Maitland Lane had attempted to conceal marijuana and a pipe from officers after Tuesday’s 7 a.m. crash.

At the time of the accident, police said, Mangino had been southbound on Wilmington Road and attempting to pass another vehicle when he lost control.

His car then hit four vehicles at the car dealership.

After the accident, police allege, Mangino took marijuana and a pipe from his vehicle, crossed Wilmington Road and tossed the items into a Dumpster.

They said he will be charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, as well as reckless driving, failing to drive at a safe speed, failing to obey traffic control devices and operating a vehicle with an expired registration.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
