A second man was charged following a disturbance Monday at a house in Union Township.

Southwest Regional police were called to 27 Hi-View Lane about noon where they discovered heroin, heroin-related paraphernalia and a 20-gauge shotgun with an obliterated serial number. Police said they conducted a consent search of the home, which is owned by Michael Muha.

Muha, 77, was charged with felony weapons violations including persons not to possess firearms. The charges will be sent by summons from the office of McMurray District Judge James Ellis.

Police also arrested Jeremiah Bartolozzi.

Bartolozzi, 40, who lived with Muha, was arrested on a bench warrant for failure to appear in court on charges of possession of a prohibited offensive weapon and drug paraphernalia.

Police are continuing their investigation and said additional charges are pending.
