• Police make huge fentanyl bust in Carrick

    Updated:

    Authorities seized a large amount of dangerous drugs Monday from a home along a busy Pittsburgh road, but are still looking for the man they say is responsible.

    Law enforcement raided the home in the 1100 block of Brownsville Road in the late afternoon, finding heroin, suspected fentanyl and crack cocaine, they said.

    Police say they’ll put out an arrest warrant for Jeremy Hancock, who they say is responsible for bringing the drugs into the Carrick neighborhood. Sources told Channel 11 police have been monitoring Hancock for a while.

    Business owners nearby were happy to see the raid – they say the drug problem in the area is out of control.

    “It’s an epidemic around here right now,” said Brian Maroney. “We’ve had people try to break into the car lot before, and break into vehicles. You know, they do whatever they can to get a buck.”
