Mt. Pleasant drug bust ends month-long investigation
Mt. Pleasant Borough police on Saturday recovered heroin, crack cocaine and stolen firearms near a Pleasant Acres Apartments residence they raided a night earlier after a month-long investigation.
Found outside the apartment were 30 bricks of heroin, four bags of crack and three stolen handguns, Officer Nathan Ellwood said.
"It was located in a trash bag in the back," Ellwood said.
On Friday night, Mt. Pleasant police recovered about $7,000 and 84 grams of marijuana, Ellwood said. Though much of the crack cocaine and heroin was destroyed, equipment for cooking crack and remnants of the drugs were also found in the residence, Ellwood said.
Following the bust Friday, three men were taken to Westmoreland County Prison. Each is being held on $100,000 bond, Ellwood said.
Anonymous tips and information about a high volume of traffic around the residence helped in the investigation, Ellwood said.
