Search turns up heroin in Homestead

Saturday, March 9, 2013, 1:01 a.m.
 

Homestead police seized a large amount of heroin, cocaine and drug paraphernalia during a warrant search of a home in the 300 block of W. Fourteenth Avenue on Thursday at approximately 4:30 p.m.

“We made a forced entry,” Homestead police detective Matt Fusco said. “We recovered two lumps of pure, uncut heroin. If they cut it, it's equivalent to 100 to 120 bricks.”

He said the street value would be approximately $40,000.

Charges are pending an investigation by another agency.

Fusco said police searched a residence in the 100 block of W. Fifteenth Avenue 30 minutes earlier and found that the cocaine they suspected would be there had been moved.

Munhall and West Homestead police assisted in the searches. Warrants were obtained based on evidence from an ongoing investigation.
