Police seized 111 bricks of heroin and fentanyl and other items from a McKeesport home.

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
