The subject of a drug-related arrest warrant was found Friday by Westmoreland County sheriff’s deputies hiding behind an attic door in the closet of an East Huntingdon home, according to Sheriff James Albert.
Donald Michael Young, 44, of South Greensburg, was arraigned Monday on weapons and drug violations, in addition to child endangerment charges, stemming from an April search at his Broad Street home.
In a criminal complaint, investigators said they were tipped off about possible criminal activity at Young’s home and served a search warrant there April 5.
Police said they found ammunition, 551 stamp bags of heroin, 16 bags of marijuana and two pistols, according to court papers. Young was not permitted to have a firearm and police said one of the guns appeared to have been subject to an attempt to scratch off its serial number.
Young and his girlfriend Shanna B. Fletcher, 37, of East Huntingdon, arrived at the home as police were searching. He allowed police to look at what he described as his “drug dealing cell phone,” according to court papers.
