State drug agents are alleging at least two people were involved in drug sales from a Murray Avenue apartment in Arnold.

Devon A. Koch, 27, of New Kensington and Douglas S. Hogan, 27, of Allegheny Township are accused of selling heroin.

They were arrested at the apartment on Murray Avenue at Freeport Road.

An Attorney General drug agent alleges that Koch sold a quantity of heroin to an informant.

According to an affidavit, police found about 7 grams of raw heroin, 250 packets of processed heroin, digital scales and other drug paraphernalia, including unused packets and a stamper to label the packets, and about $840 in marked money.

Koch is charged with three drug felonies and was released pending a Thursday preliminary hearing after posting $75,000 bond.

He is represented by attorney David A. Regoli, who wasn’t available for comment Monday.

Hogan is accused of two drug felonies. He also faces a preliminary hearing Thursday. Court records did not list an attorney for Hogan.

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.
