• Man, 29, arrested on outstanding warrant; Cops find heroin, cash in home


    Authorities in Washington County seized 30 bricks of heroin and more than $5,000 in cash during a raid Thursday in Charleroi.

    Washington County District Attorney Eugene A. Vittone said the drug task force became aware of an outstanding warrant from Westmoreland County for 29-year-old Hawn Patterson.

    During the course of the investigation Detectives located Patterson at a home on Luella Avenue, Vittone said.

    Patterson consented to a search of the residence, Vitton said. That search resulted in the seizure of 30 bricks (1,500 Stamp Bags) of heroin and $5,586 in cash.

    Patterson was taken into custody and turned over to the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Department on the Westmoreland County arrest warrant.

    Washington County District Attorney Drug Task Force Detectives will file charges at a later date for this search at the residence, Vittone said.
