A fourth person was arrested Wednesday in connection with a drug bust Friday in Ligonier Township.

Chelsea Lynn Calabrace, 26, was lodged in the Westmoreland County Prison on $50,000 bond.

One suspect has posted bond since Aug. 11 — George Anthony Calabrace, 26 — and the other two remain imprisoned — Kyle Douglas Clem, 26, and Kelsey Marie Mathews, 21.

Police said in an affidavit filed Wednesday that 351 stamp bags of suspected heroin valued at $7,000 was found at the Trout Avenue home in a bedroom used by Chelsea and George Calabrace.

Township police were assisted by several local agencies during a search warrant Aug. 11 that netted the suspected heroin, drug paraphernalia and a single plastic bottle used for manufacturing methamphetamine, authorities said. Three children were there at the time, according to criminal complaints.

Chelsea Calabrace is charged with possession with intent to deliver, child endangerment, drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Preliminary hearings for all of the suspects are set for Aug. 25.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
