Nearly 10 grams of crack cocaine was pulled from a Jeannette toilet Thursday by police during a raid at a North Third Street home, according to court papers.

As police entered the home, four people were seen near the second-floor bathroom and the toilet was running.

Arrested on drug, conspiracy and related offenses were Shannon Ashley Reilly, 29; Basil Dawan Wilson, 36; and Latif Lamar Harris, 36, all of Jeannette, and Michael Salley, 29, of Philadelphia.

Agents from the state attorney general’s office and Jeannette police were armed with a search warrant when they found the suspects inside, according to court papers. In addition to the drugs in the toilet, authorities also seized cocaine, 24 grams of marijuana and other items associated with drug packaging.

The four were being held in the Westmoreland County Prison on $25,000 bail each. None had an attorney listed in online court papers. Preliminary hearings are set for Oct. 10.

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.
