Police hunt for East End fugitive brothers linked to burglary, drug charges
Police are seeking the public’s help to find a pair of fugitive brothers from Pittsburgh’s East End accused of burglary and drug charges, officials said Wednesday.
Dasonte White, 23, faces charges of receiving stolen property and is wanted for several burglaries, according to Allegheny County Police. He is 6 feet tall and weighs about 160 pounds.
His brother, Devonte White, 26, is charged with drug possession, police said. He is 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs about 275 pounds.
Both men are known to frequent the East End neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, Wilkinsburg and Swissvale.
Police issued the latest arrest warrants for the brothers in connection to an April 24 residential burglary in Edgewood. Investigators believe that Dasonte White was involved in the crime, in addition to having outstanding warrants for other prior burglaries, Allegheny County Police Inspector Andrew Schurman said.
Officials served a search warrant at Dasonte White’s home and found more than a pound of marijuana, eight ounces of cocaine and $24,000 in cash, Schurman said.
The evidence prompted police to issue a second arrest warrant for Devonte White in connection to drug possession.
Officials asked anyone with information about either man’s whereabouts to call the county police tipline at 1-833-255-8477. Callers may remain anonymous.
