One screw holding license plate gets warrant suspect arrested in Arnold

Arnold, Pa. – Police in Arnold arrested a Latrobe woman who had an arrest warrant out of Kew Kensington PD late last week after it was observed the license plate had only one screw securing it to the vehicle.

According to the criminal complaint, police followed the vehicle in the 1500 Block of 3rd Avenue when the occupants parked and exited the vehicle-walking to a porch on 3rd Avenue. Police said they parked behind the Dodge Durango that had an expired inspection sticker and approached the couple.

The male passenger identified himself as Robeson and then said he was Josh Zaleski and was there to see Robinson. Police asked if he had knocked on the door and he said no. Zaleski then found his OLN and police ran the information.

The female was asked who she was and said she was ****** ***** from Latrobe. Police ran the information with negative results and then the female admitted to being Kristina Krinock, age 25 of Latrobe, Pa. New Kensington Police Department advised they had a warrant for her.

She was also asked if she had knocked on the door and she said no. The elderly occupant came out and said she did not know the trespassers and did not want them there. Krinock said she gave the wrong name because she was afraid. On pat-down, police found a baggie in the right front pocket of her sweats that contained crack cocaine. She also had 2 empty pink stamp bags in her purse and one not quite empty.
