JEANNETTE, Pa. - Two people are facing charges after a drug raid in Westmoreland County.
Amber Qushawn Hall, 32, and Gregory Laron Parker, 39, were taken into custody on various drug and gun charges as well as charges of receiving stolen property.
State police said they raided the home on Good Street in Jeannette Wednesday morning because they knew the couple’s two children, who have special needs, would not be home.
Police found more than $100,000 worth of drugs, including 100 grams of raw fentanyl, 350 bags of suspected heroin and marijuana. They also seized two loaded guns that were in plain view in the bedroom; one of the guns had been reported stolen.

"When it comes to fentanyl, just inhaling some of that or coming in contact can be lethal, and these people had it in their bedroom," said Trooper Stephen Limani of the Pennsylvania State Police.
Police said Hall and Parker were asleep in the home when they came in through both the front and back doors.
Neighbors told Channel 11 they’ve noticed strangers coming and going from the home in short visits for months. The calls and tips to police were answered Wednesday.
“It’s one thing if neighbors come across and visit you, but when cars pull up and stay five minutes or so, ‘Who are you and what are you doing here?’” one neighbor said.
Police are awaiting test results on the substance inside those bags to see if it was heroin, fentanyl or both.
Hall and Parker are in the Westmoreland County Jail.
