State police are accusing three people of selling methamphetamine in a Parks Township residence.

State troopers arrested three people Monday in Parks and charged them with possessing or selling methamphetamine.

Troopers said Steven Taylor Green, 43, of Erie was at the residence of Liana Nicole Zaffuto, 32, and Jeffrey Shawn Lookhart, 34.

The troopers were at a residence in the North Vandergrift section of Parks investigating a reported disturbance, police said.

According to arrest reports, Green and Zaffuto told troopers that Lookhart caused a disturbance just after midnight and then left.

In the report, troopers said Lookhart later returned to his residence in the 1200 block of Lincoln Street.

The arresting officer said Lookhart agreed to a search by police.

After a bag of suspected meth was found in his pocket, Lookhart told troopers that Green had given it to him so that Green could continue to sell meth from the house, according to arrest reports.

Troopers said Lookhart also alleged that he saw Green sell the drug to numerous people throughout the night and that Zaffuto was with him.

After a search of the residence, troopers found a small scale and three cellphones belonging to Green, according to the police report.

Troopers said Green had meth, heroin and marijuana on him.

Green is charged with felony drug sales and three other drug charges.

According to court records, Green was sent to the Armstrong County Jail pending $50,000 bond pending a preliminary hearing.

Zaffuto and Lookhart are each charged with felony drug delivery and drug possession.

Zaffuto and Lookhart were in the Armstrong County Jail pending $20,000 and $25,000 bonds, respectively, pending preliminary hearings, according to court records.
