Tips lead police to whereabouts of 2 suspects

SHARON — Two men wanted on warrants were taken to jail Monday after police received a tip about where they could be found.

Corey Neely, 26, was found at 821 Spearman Ave., where he lives, said police Chief Mike Menster. He was arrested at about 10 p.m. and turned over to Greenville-West Salem Township police on a warrant accusing him of aggravated assault.

Police also arrested Andrew Kiester, 26, of 1204 Main St., who was sought on an escape charge.

Kiester had been charged last month after residents reported seeing someone looking into the windows of vacant houses June 24 in the 300 block of Malleable Street.

After a short foot chase, patrolmen caught Kiester and charged him with flight to avoid apprehension, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and possession of a small amount of marijuana.

At Shenango Valley Regional Lockup in Farrell, Kiester told police he had swallowed a large quantity of prescription drugs before his arrest and he was taken to the emergency room of Sharon Regional Health System. He was admitted and later managed to walk out of the hospital, Menster said.

Kiester was taken to Mercer County Jail after his arraignment on the escape charge.
