CRANBERRY TWP — Charges are stacking up against a township man who has tangled with the law three times in two months.

Marcos Isaac Baldeo, 25, was connected to a police chase with speeds reaching up to 96 mph in May, as well as a high-speed crash in June that injured three people. Now a recent traffic stop that brought charges of resisting arrest.

According to the criminal complaint filed Monday, officers were called to a home in Trenton Court June 23 for an argument between the caller and six individuals. Documents say police were familiar with the home — Baldeo’s — where they had gone the previous evening for a similar call.

The caller told police that Baldeo and his friends were smoking marijuana in the building.

This week, he was charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest, use and possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana in connection with that traffic stop.

On July 3, he was arrested for a June 14 incident in which he allegedly crashed his vehicle on Autumn Hill Drive just after noon. One person was trapped in the vehicle as the result of that accident.

The complaint states Baldeo had a blood-alcohol level of 0.139 percent. A blood test also showed marijuana was in his system.

That incident occurred while Baldeo was free on bail from a May 28 incident in which he allegedly was speeding and refused to get out of his car after being pulled over.

Baldeo was scheduled to appear for formal arraignment before Judge William Shaffer on Tuesday, but a court filing Wednesday indicated he failed to appear. A motion for a bench warrant was submitted by Robert Zanella, assistant district attorney.
