A Jeannette man pulled over in Greensburg Saturday after an officer suspected him of driving with a suspended license was found with nearly two bricks of heroin, police said.
Moziah S. Harris, 28, was stopped driving his 2015 Honda about 2:25 a.m. along the 100 block College Avenue by Patrolman Hank Fontana Jr.
Fontana reported in court documents that he recognized Harris from prior arrests and suspected he was driving on a suspended license. Fontana said that Harris got out of his vehicle after the stop “and dropped one stamp of suspected heroin marked ‘Jet Fuel’ out of his left hand and onto the pavement.”
Police Thursday night busted a major marijuana growing operation in a senior citizen’s basement in Penn Hills, seizing guns, cash and hundreds of pot plants estimated to be worth a half-million dollars on the street.
The 66-year-old homeowner, Kenneth Creekmore, who is facing drug charges, told authorities that he was selling the marijuana to people who needed it for medical purposes and to make extra money, according to a criminal complaint.
Mr. Creekmore is not authorized to sell medical marijuana, the complaint said.
Reached at home Friday morning, Mr. Creekmore said, “I got nothing to say. I don’t know anything.”
Asked how all the marijuana plants got in his house, he said, “No comment. Bye,” and hung up on a reporter.
Authorities will charge Mr. Creekmore by summons with running the operation out of the basement of his home in the 5800 block of Heberton Drive.
He is facing two felony counts — of manufacturing and possession with intent to deliver — and a misdemeanor count of prohibited acts.
