ARNOLD: Four people were arrested Monday on drug charges.

Antione Bernardo Abraham, 18, of North Atlantic Avenue, Pittsburgh; Lamont Jackson, 22, of Leishman Avenue, Arnold; Tim Albrecht, 20, of Fifth Avenue, Arnold; and a juvenile were picked up after selling drugs to undercover agents, state police said.

The arrests were part of patrols state police routinely conduct in the city.

There was no information available on the juvenile.

Police said about $200 was seized from the four men.
