On Thursday, April 21, 2022, Pittsburgh Police accompanied Allegheny County Police as they conducted a search warrant in the 5700 block of Pocusset Street following their investigation into Andrew Clinton, 20, of Pittsburgh.  

Clinton is charged with multiple burglaries in Allegheny County and is currently being held in the Allegheny County Jail.  He is also being investigated by Pittsburgh Police for falsely presenting himself as a home improvement and general contractor, a landscaper, and HVAC technician, allegedly defrauding victims in the Squirrel Hill area.
