Narcotics detectives from the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office and local police arrested three men and confiscated millions of dollars worth of cocaine and more than $100,000 in cash Tuesday evening during a drug bust at a home in Penn Hills.

Detectives, investigating drug activity in Monroeville at the request of police, saw David Chavez Carbajal, a Mexican national, leaving a motel and driving to the home of William Wilson on Pinewood Square in Penn Hills, said Mike Manko, a spokesman for District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.

Detectives saw Leland Cobb of Homewood leaving the residence with a large bag and searched the home and found four kilos of cocaine, a stolen gun and the money, Manko said.

Four kilos of cocaine were found in Wilson's vehicle and 13 kilograms of cocaine were found in Cobb's vehicle, Manko said.
