New Kensington police and drug agents with the Attorney General's Office say they found guns and drugs in a Locust Street drug raid on Friday morning.

Sheth Houser, 23, of 213 Locust St. is accused of possessing a stolen handgun, heroin, crack cocaine and marijuana, and felony drug possession with intent to deliver drugs.

Police found other guns and are checking to see whether they are stolen. New Kensington Detective Dino DiGiacobbe said police continue to investigate.

“Police investigated citizen complaints and then got a search warrant,” the detective said.

The house is across the street from Mary Queen of Apostles School. If Houser is convicted, he could be sentenced to an additional five to 10 years for having guns and drugs near a school, police said.

DiGiacobbe said the investigation is part of an Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force, which combines federal, state and local probes.

Two such task forces are working in the Alle-Kiski Valley, officials said.
