FULL STORY  Another reputed gang member alleged to be involved in the Sandusky summer shootings is behind bars.

Police arrested Denarea L. Swain, 23, late Friday morning at a Campbell Street home, Sandusky police Det. Sgt. John Orzech said.

“We are happy to have his arrest,” he said. “We know the community’s interested in getting these cases concluded.”

Police said Swain fired a gun in the June 12 shoot-out between rival gangs at Hancock and Neil streets. About a dozen shots were fired into a crowd of people. One bullet hit a bystander in the leg.

The shooting is believed to have been over a personal dispute between Swain and Elisha C. Cannon, who are suspected members of rival gangs.

Cannon is serving three years and six months in prison after he pleaded guilty in October to felonious assault in Erie County Common Pleas Court for his role in that shooting, as well as a July 19 shooting on Huntington Drive in which another person was shot in the leg.

A warrant was issued by secret indictment in August for Swain’s arrest. Police found him Friday at the home of Lavar Glinsey. 

Glinsey, 24, was charged with obstructing justice for allowing Swain to stay with him and for trafficking in marijuana after officers seized about 200 grams of marijuana. Glinsey is not believed to have been involved in the shootings, Orzech said.

Swain is charged with attempted murder, felonious assault, two counts of having a weapon while under disability, and improper discharge of a firearm. 

Officers tried to arrest Swain in July at his home on Wamajo Drive. They did not find Swain but did find between 20 to 25 grams of crack cocaine, with an estimated street value of $100 per gram. For that Swain was also charged Friday with preparation of crack cocaine for sale, and possession of crack cocaine.

Swain is a suspect in other shootings that occurred over the summer, but there is not enough evidence to charge him. Orzech would not disclose what other shootings Swain may have been involved in.

Swain has a long criminal record, including carrying a concealed weapon, intimidation and resisting arrest.

 thetruth23, I'm not sure where you see a problem....I am under the impression that the article is REFERRING not "reffering" to the shooting in this article http://www.sanduskyregister.com/... and this is where Kevin Randleman was shot, and where there were multiple fires shot.  I have no idea what you are talking about.

Taxpayer

Gangs???  There are no gangs in the city.  Just ask all the politicians and schools.

thetruth23

what im talking about is there accusing mr. swain of a commited crime which he did not take part it. but the charges wont stick just like elisha cannons didnt. sanduskys police force and court system are a joke, period

In response to thetruth23's comment,

The shooting is believed to have been over a personal dispute between Swain and Elisha C. Cannon, who are suspected members of rival gangs.

Cannon is serving three years and six months in prison after he pleaded guilty in October to felonious assault in Erie County Common Pleas Court for his role in that shooting, as well as a July 19 shooting on Huntington Drive in which another person was shot in the leg.

 

If Swain's charges "don't stick" like Cannon's didn't I guess we'll see him in about 3.5 years.  Of course I don't think Elisha had a sizable amount of drugs ""allegedly" in his bedroom when SPD got him either.  I'll take 3.5 years less of these two on the streets if I can get it.

 So The Register is just reporting what the police have told them.  They used the words "alleged" and "accused" so I wouldn't say anything against them...I wouldn't give 3 thumbs down to Melissa Topey over this :p

realitycheck419

RE: Realitycheck419

Yep..let's keep blaming other people, that is what is wrong with Sandusky now...no one takes responsibility for their actions. Im hoping your kidding, but im betting youre not....

actualy im curious as to what the one sandusky gang is, are you referring to BlackPoint Mafia, or the Outlaws?

Before it is all said and done hopefully they(police) get all these clowns off the street. It is not fair to the good citizens of Sandusky to have to deal with this nonsense. I know a lot of outsiders think Sandusky is a horrible place to live but it is no different than any other city. You have your good parts and your bad parts. And you have good people and you have bad people. Clowns like this happen to make everyone look bad. I don't have much sympathy for Swain because he knows better, his older brother is doing several years in prison right now for weapons charges. Sandusky is so small when you comit a crime everyone and their mother already knows who done it the next day. It just doesn't make a lick of sense but they have a place for these so called tough guys and gang bangers. Bubba is waiting for them to make them his cell mate!

Way to go register with a bais opinion maybe one day you can be the perkins paper.  But until then keep your bais garbage opinion to yourself or maybe the editorials.

I am so thankful that we now have a real policechief in this town, not the last 3 jokers and jokerettes that have sat behind that desk.

As an NFL fan, with one NFL jersey of his favorite players are something to be happy and proud. In addition, this is also the best way to support your idols. At the same time, I personally think that if you can spend less money to buy the same quality of Cheap nfl jerseys, and the why not do that? Do you like Larry Darnell Fitzgerald?if yes!Choose his nfl jerseys.TheYouth nfl jerseys is so classical that you can see people wear it every where.It is full of power and vitality.I am sure when you wear it you will become more attractive. In words, NFL room for the development should not be a large multi-NBA. So, does this indicates that the prospect of nfl jerseys wholesale is a bright? In my opinion, the answer is determined. Every adult all hope that their children can become David Beckham.But this is one is full of the temptation of the world.eg.game "Times New Roman";mso-hansi-font-family:"Times New Roman"">、allroom "Times New Roman";mso-hansi-font-family:"Times New Roman"">、moking and so on!YES!These things will take your children to the wrong way.But now As long as often with your children to exercise to feel the secrets of the Youth nfl jerseys.Let your children like nfl jerseys.To support their favorite nfl team.NFL player gave me a real sense, which take me think of that the race is so stimulating!
