More than $33,000 worth of heroin and fentanyl was seized from a McKeesport home Friday and two people were arrested, according to the Allegheny County Police.
Camille Ann Pruitt, 27, of McKeesport, and Tyjior Leslie Brown, 18, of Pittsburgh, are facing drug and conspiracy charges.
Authorities served a search warrant at a home on Yester Square in the Crawford Village housing complex Friday morning and found more than 111 “bricks” of heroin and fentanyl, a loaded 9mm handgun and about $700, according to police.
The gun was found sitting on the bathroom sink in reach of three children inside the home, police said. Pruitt faces additional child endangerment counts.
Both Pruitt and Brown posted $10,000 bail Saturday, according to online court records. Phone numbers for them could not be located. Neither had an attorney listed.
Preliminary hearings are set for Nov. 18.
