PITTSBURGH —

Police arrested five people Saturday afternoon during a drug bust at a South Side home on Larkins Way.

Officers said they found 7 pounds of marijuana, more than 5 ounces of MDMA and Xanax.

Additionally, officers took more than $2,400 in cash and drug paraphernalia from the home.

“The investigation started from citizen complaints and other drug activity in the area [that] led to this residence, so our detectives started a surveillance and that led to getting a search warrant today,” said Pittsburgh police Sgt. Chad O’Brien.

Police said they also have a warrant out for a sixth person.
