Police: Illegal parking spot leads university police to drug bust



SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - A freshman at Slippery Rock University was arrested Friday night when police said they found almost an ounce of marijuana in an illegally-parked car.

Authorities said Tyler Dagres, 19, of Grove City, was arrested after SRU Police said they noticed a car parked in a handicapped parking space along Campus Drive near Rhodes Hall.

When the officers approached the car with the intentions of telling the driver to move, police said they saw Dagres with a baggie of marijuana sticking out of his sleeve, and then another bag in the car.

“I think it’s a bad idea to sell drugs in the first place, but to park in a handicapped spot is just dumb,” a Slippery Rock University student said.

According to court documents, Dagres was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a small amount of marijuana and corruption of minors.
