NEW CASTLE, Pa. —
Lawrence County narcotics officers raided a suspected drug house Wednesday in New Castle.
According to police, detectives arrested Matt Clavelli inside the Leisure Avenue home after they found more than six grams of heroin inside the home.
Investigators said they believe Clavelli is a seller and a user.
Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz reported that neighbors alerted police about the house because they had become fed up.
Clavelli’s father, Randy Clavelli, told Marcinkiewicz that he owns the home.
“I’m not proud of my son. I’m disappointed because this generation is bums. My son has a problem,” Randy Clavelli said.
Matt Clavelli’s sister said the house isn’t as bad as neighbors portrayed it. She said she raised her son in the home.
“This is a house. We’re just trying to live here. My brother needs help,” the sister said.
Matt Clavelli remains in the Lawrence County Jail on drug-related charges.
