Cranberry Updates ‘Most Wanted’ List—View It

The township releases photos, addresses and more of people with active arrest warrants.

Cranberry has updated its “Most Wanted” list on the township’s website with information on new people with active arrest warrants from the Cranberry Township Police Department.

Besides names and photos, “Most Wanted” also includes the crimes the individuals are charged with.

Cranberry added the feature in Janurary at the request of the police department. At the time, township manager Jerry Andree noted public awareness is one of the best ways to find people.

Residents are warned not to approach or attempt to apprehend any of the suspects.

As people are added or taken off the list of active arrest warrants, the site is updated with the new details.

Anyone with information on the people listed on the site is asked to call Cranberry police at 724-776-5180, ext. 5 or dial 9-1-1. Tips may be emailed tips@cranberrytownship.org.

yes these people might be effecting our area but the police should be targeting drug distrubution more strictly. The connection between criminal activity and the use of drugs and alcohol has long been an issue in American society. Even before federal laws were passed in 1914 to control narcotics and other drugs, observers claimed that drug use and criminal activity were strongly linked. Drugs and alcohol are thought to encourage criminal behavior in several ways. Their use can reduce inhibitions, stimulate aggression, and interfere with critical thinking and motor skills (such as driving or operating machinery). Each of these factors may also reduce a person's ability to earn a legal income, which may lead the drug user to commit crimes in order to obtain money. For those using addictive drugs, the need to get money to support a drug habit may take priority over any other consideration. Illegal drug users may also find themselves more frequently exposed to situations that encourage crime. For the poor and underprivileged, drug and alcohol abuse can become an additional negative social condition within their environment. The same circumstances leading a person to commit crimes may also lead to drug use. In addition, the same conditions limiting employment opportunity may also contribute to both drug abuse and criminal behavior. (said from a 17 yr old) (sourse=opposing viewpoints)
