Two men are accused of having semiautomatic weapons during an incident at a public housing complex in Uniontown.

Kevin Anthony Sublett Jr., 20, of Uniontown, is charged with two counts of firearms not to be carried without a license. Hosea Gardie Craggette II, 22, of Lemont Furnace, is charged with possession, possession of marijuana and firearms not to be carried without a license.

In criminal complaints, Uniontown Police said they went to Pershing Court 3:36 a.m. Wednesday for a report of a man threatening another person at gunpoint.

When they arrived, police said, Sublett hid a semiautomatic 9mm rifle in bushes in front of 118 Pershing Court and Craggette hid a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun in another set of bushes. Both men were then apprehended and the weapons were recovered, according to the complaints.

Police said they found a third weapon, a 9 mm Ruger handgun, while searching Sublett. Craggette was found to be in possession of $1,560 cash and suspected marijuana and crack cocaine, according to police.

Sublett, according to the complaint, told police he bought the semiautomatic rifle “from a crack head for $30.”

Both men were arraigned before Uniontown District Judge Michael Metros and placed in the Fayette County Prison in lieu of bond pending preliminary hearings.
