A Greensburg man whose neck tattoo foiled his plan to give police a fake name will spend two to four years in state prison.

Chad M. Stitch, 35, pleaded guilty Wednesday to possession with intent to deliver and false identification to law enforcement. Westmoreland County Common Pleas Judge Christopher Feliciani sentenced him to prison.

Police arrested Stitch in July after he was pulled over in a car suspected to be involved in a drug deal.

A witness reported an apparent drug deal July 4 along South Main Street in Greensburg and officers caught up to the suspected vehicle close to the Cedar Street exit of Route 30, police said. Stitch identified himself as “Chad Majors,” but a city policeman — who had arrested Stitch in 2012 — called his bluff.

The suspect had his last name tattooed on his neck, police said. They seized about 40 bags of suspected heroin, 23 Ecstasy tablets, marijuana and $180.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
