McKees Rocks police have issued arrest warrants for two men for drug-related charges and are seeking their whereabouts.

David Johnson, 27, is charged with possession with intent to deliver drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Omari Thompson, 25, is charged with possession with intent to deliver controlled substances. Both are from McKees Rocks, and police said they believe the men are working together.

Police said they found nearly 8,000 individually packaged bags of heroin, nearly $18,000 in cash, drug packaging materials, and a money counting machine at 840 Island Ave. on Jan. 20 and issued the charges for Johnson.

The charges for Thompson stem from a Dec. 17 incident where a state parole agent found 4,500 individually packaged bags of heroin, a .357 revolver and cash in Thompson's residence.
