Drug Arrest graphic _ 2019

Loyalsock Township, Pa. – Police said a Philadelphia man who was under the influence of drugs was “out of his mind” when he screamed and stood on  railroad tracks with his pants down the morning of October 27, 2019 in Loyalsock Township.

Pennsylvania State Police in Montoursville were called to the area of Greevey and Old Montoursville roads at 10:27 a.m. for a welfare check on a black male who reportedly was screaming loudly. The incident occurred just outside of Montoursville, near Riverfront Park.

When police arrived, they identified the man as Lawrence Davis, 41. Davis was allegedly under the influence of drugs, police said. Police also noted Davis was not wearing pants.

“He was found with various baggies with white stuff inside of it individually packaged,” said Trooper Anthony Mazzone. Police also recovered from Davis large amounts of suspected molly or ecstasy, cocaine and synthetic marijuana.

Davis was taken to the hospital but later was released, Mazzone said. PSP did not have enough manpower that day to have a trooper stay with Davis the entire time he was at the hospital, Mazzone noted. Per hospital guidelines, they are not required to have someone present when a person is released.

Police have filed felony charges of possession of narcotics with intent to deliver at the office of District Magistrate Gary A. Whiteman. There is currently a felony warrant out for Davis’s arrest, Mazzone said.
