Anthony Joseph Gottlieb, 33, of Tyrone is being held in the Blair County Prison, unable to post bail following an April 4 incident that began at Sheetz on Logan Ave., Tyrone.
Around 1:30 a.m., Tyrone Police officers were on patrol when they observed a male standing on the side of Sheetz. When he saw the police, the male quickly picked up his book bag and began walking east on Logan Ave. Officers circled the parking lot twice and noted that the male was no longer at the store. One officer exited the vehicle to patrol on foot. A witness informed the officer in the patrol vehicle that a man went between the bushes outside a residence at 1400 Pennsylvania Ave.
The officer on foot entered into a chase with the male, ending behind Blair Medical Associates. The male was handcuffed and identified as Gottlieb.
During the chase, Gottlieb attempted to throw his backpack into some bushes. The backpack was located and searched, yielding a pouch inside with seven glass marijuana pipes with burnt residue, a straw with white residue, two baggies containing suspected methamphetamine, and a baggie and a container containing suspected marijuana.
Gottlieb is charged with two misdemeanor counts for intentional possession of a controlled substance by a person not registered, misdemeanors for possession of marijuana, use/possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and loitering/prowling at night.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 13 at 9 a.m. before Magisterial District Judge Fred Miller.
