Officers use pepper spray on suspect at Metrolink

St. Louis County officers assigned to the Metrolink Unit responded to a call around 1:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon alleging a known drug dealer was near the North Hanley Metrolink platform and that he was likely armed.

When officers confronted the suspect, he became combative, they said, so they then used pepper spray to bring him under control.

The suspect was, in fact, found to be in possession of a firearm that was reported stolen from the 8th Precinct (Jennings). He was also in possession of numerous small baggies of suspected drugs.  The suspect was arrested and charges are pending.
