HARRISON CITY, Pa. —
Federal agents indicted two men Thursday accused of running a meth operation in Westmoreland County.
According to police, Dominick Spickle, 78, was allegedly bringing methamphetamine to 57-year-old Kevin Nichol’s home in Harrison City from California.
Investigators said when they raided the Johnstown Court home in September, they found suspected meth, more than 120 guns and dozens of knives.
Gary Liss, who lives near the home, told Channel 11’s Courtney Brennan that Nichol had lived in the same house for almost 30 years.
“I’m very surprised that he had that going on over at his house. It’s a surprise for the whole neighborhood,” Liss said.
Liss said Nichol went to a lot of flea markets, and they assumed he was an antique collector who stored items in the detached garages behind his home.
“He did flea market work as far as I knew. He sold stuff at flea markets. He went out on the weekends and I would see him loading up his vans,” Liss said.
Brennan reported that Nichol’s home is about 100 yards away from Harrison Park Elementary School, which raised concerns for police.
Both men were in jail for a short time, but were released on bond.
