A man was arrested at the Sheldon Park housing complex Tuesday on drug charges after police say they found 48 stamp bags of heroin in the housing unit where he was staying.

Norman Kemp, III , 28, of 372 Park Ave., was arrested around 8 p.m. by Patrolman Ken Hanzlik, according to Chief Mike Klein. He said Hanzlik, acting on information received about possible heroin dealing at that address, did what Klein called a "knock and talk" there. Klein said, in speaking with Kemp, Hanzlik asked to do a consensual search of the premises and Kemp agreed.

Klein said Hanzlik actually did not have to conduct a search, that Kemp basically turned over the 48 bags of heroin, 26 stamped "Ice Box" and 22 stamped "Bobby Brown." The drugs were confiscated along with $256 in cash, he said.

Kemp was arrested and arraigned in night court in Pittsburgh on charges of drug possession and drug possession with intent to deliver, according to Klein. He said Kemp was sent to the Allegheny County Jail but he had yet to be arraigned late Wednesday, according to prison officials.
