Authorities on Thursday announced the arrest of a McKeesport man they call an “upper-level heroin dealer.”

Narcotics agents from the State Attorney General's Office and local police say they seized 10 bricks — or 500 individual bags — of heroin from Willie James Means Jr., 43.

He is charged with drug delivery and other narcotics charges. State agents and officers from Frazer and North Versailles confiscated the heroin in bags that were stamped, “Play Dead,” the AG's office said.

More arrests are expected, the office said.

Means was arrested Wednesday and remains free on $25,000 bond to await a preliminary hearing scheduled June 26, state court records show.
