Authorities in Washington County on Wednesday recovered a stolen firearm and 184 stamp bags of heroin while serving several search warrants, the district attorney's office said.

Officers discovered the gun and heroin at the Ramada Inn Washington and arrested Avery Lionel Turner, 22, of Washington and Mercedes Stamm, 19, of Canonsburg.

Stamm is accused of conspiracy to distribute heroin and hindering apprehension. Turner is charged with felony possession with intent to deliver heroin and firearms violations.

East Washington police separately wanted Turner for a kidnapping charge, and Washington police sought him for robbery. He is being held at the Washington County Correctional Facility.

In unrelated arrests, authorities charged Kevin Brooks, 39, of Eighty Four and Leah Brown, 26, of Washington with drug delivery. Both were jailed.
