Police: Harrison teen found with drugs, stolen handgun
A 17-year-old Harrison boy allegedly had a stolen handgun and 55 packets of heroin in his bedroom when he was arrested Friday morning.
Police from Harrison and Tarentum, along with the state Attorney General’s office Bureau of Narcotics, served a search warrant at 34 Park Avenue in Sheldon Park around 6 a.m., Harrison police Chief Mike Klein said.
The boy’s name was not being released because he is a juvenile.
Klein said officers found the heroin, a brick plus five packets, along with three baggies of marijuana, two drug scales, a marijuana grinder and $420 in cash.
The gun, a .40 caliber Glock, was loaded with a 30 round magazine, Klein said.
Police charged the teen as a juvenile with possession of a firearm by a minor, receiving stolen property, possession and possession with intent to deliver drugs.
He was arrested without incident, and was being sent to a juvenile detention center, Klein said.
