A Glendora man was arrested and charged with drug possession, after receiving tips that he was selling drugs from an apartment building located across the street from Northview High School in Covina.
A police patrol spotted Christopher Strohl at a carport in the parking lot of the apartment building where neighbors had complained of drug dealing. Police recognized Stohl, who police say was behaving suspiciously, and learned that he had an outstanding traffic warrant. They arrested Stohl for the outstanding warrant, and found that he was in possession of nearly 10 grams of heroin and a small quantity of methamphetamine. He was charged with possession of heroin for sale, and faces additional charges related to the outstanding warrant.
