Suspected LSD discovered in car

STEUBENVILLE — City Police early Wednesday morning arrested a man who was in possession of a large amount of suspected LSD and other drugs.

Officers were called around 9 a.m. to Ruff Creek Market, 953 N. Seventh St., about a man passed out in a car at one of the gas pumps. An officer reached into the car and shut off the engine and tried to wake up the man, identified as Glenn T. Galloway, 37, of 1016 Collins Memorial Drive, Chester.

The officer reported seeing a glass pipe used to smoke methamphetamine under Galloway’s foot. Galloway was removed from the car and placed in handcuffs.

The car was searched and suspected methamphetamine and pills inside a bottle were found, police reported.

Several pages of colorful perforated paper were found throughout the vehicle, police reported. An officer said it could be LSD.

The Jefferson County Drug Task Force was called for assistance, and reported about 1,100 unit doses of suspected LSD were counted. The task force is awaiting test results on the paper to determine if it is LSD.

Assistant Prosecutor Steve Lamatrice said Galloway will be charged with possession of methamphetamine. He said other charges might be filed after the drug tests are completed.

Galloway was taken to Trinity Medical Center West for treatment and then taken to the county jail.

Galloway also was charged with being in physical control of a vehicle while under the influence.
