Police raid Lincoln-Lemington home, seize stolen guns, 4.5 pounds of cocaine, other drugs
Police arrested three Pittsburgh residents Thursday after finding stolen guns, nearly 4.5 pounds of cocaine as well as methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana and drug packaging materials inside a home in Pittsburgh’s Lincoln-Lemington neighborhood, officials said.
Three of the eight guns recovered from the residence turned up stolen, public safety officials said.
The suspects arrested on drug charges include: Terrance Jones, 33; Brian White Jr., 21, and Glendora Woodson, 53. All three live in the city’s Lincoln-Lemington neighborhood.
Each will be charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver, drug paraphernalia and conspiracy, Public Safety spokeswoman Cara Cruz said.
“Regarding the seized firearms, the investigation is ongoing,” Cruz said. “Additional charges are expected to be filed in the near future.”
The bust was the result of an investigation by Pittsburgh police’s narcotics and vice unit targeting a residence in the 7100 block of Churchland Street that began in July.
Officials secured a search warrant for the property this week.
With help from the SWAT team, detectives served the warrant early Thursday, Cruz said.
In addition to two kilograms of cocaine, or about 4.4 pounds, authorities found inside the residence about three pounds of marijuana, four ounces of methamphetamine and an ounce of heroin. Police also seized just under $3,300 in cash.
