Philly homicide suspect arrested

A wanted homicide suspect out of Philadelphia was arrested Friday in Cambria County, court documents stated.

Dashane Ferguson, 22, was arraigned Friday by Cambria County Magisterial District Judge Judge Kevin Price on felony counts of drug possession with intent to deliver after police seized packed marijuana from his possession earlier that day in Johnstown.

According to a complaint, police were dispatched to the 200 block of Cooper Avenue, Johnstown, after Ferguson allegedly refused to leave a residence.

Police accuse Ferguson of providing several false names to police, and he allegedly told officers on scene that he “didn’t like the police,” adding that his father was killed by police.

Ferguson was detained at the scene, and while police searched his possessions, officers allegedly discovered 11 individually packaged bags of marijuana in his pockets.

Police said Ferguson finally provided his proper identification to police at the Johnstown Public Safety Building, and police then discovered the active warrants for her arrest in relation to an undefined homicide case.

Unable to post 10% of $500,000 cash bail, Ferguson was committed to Cambria County Prison.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled Tuesday before Cambria County Magisterial District Judge Michael J. Musulin.
