Two Arrested in Weeks-Long Drug InvestigationDate: May 22, 2020
Incident Type: Drug Arrests
Location: Pittsburgh/East McKeesport
Pittsburgh Bureau of Police detectives arrested two men Thursday in Lawrenceville on drug charges after a weeks-long investigation.
Narcotics and Vice detectives investigated multiple citizen complaints of suspicious activity at a home in the 400 block of 44th Street in Lawrenceville. After observing activity indicative of illegal drug sales, detectives obtained a search warrant for the residence and a second search warrant for a related residence in East McKeesport.
Pittsburgh Police served the warrant Thursday in Lawrenceville and recovered crack cocaine, raw (uncut) heroin, and drug packaging materials. Pittsburgh Police detectives and East McKeesport Police then served the second search warrant and recovered a Glock .45 caliber pistol with an extended magazine and ammunition.
Detectives arrested William Davis, 62, and Anthony Glover, 41, at the Lawrenceville residence. They face charges of possession of a controlled substance, intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal conspiracy. Glover also faces gun charges.
Pittsburgh Police thank the public for their help in this investigation. When residents share information of suspicious activity, police solve crimes. These arrests might not have been possible without the public’s help.
