Police arrested two men and seized 1,500 bricks of heroin and more $100,000 in cash and jewelry at a Pittsburgh house owned by former Alabama and Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back Deshea Townsend, according to a report from Pittsburgh CBS station KDKA.
Townsend, now a defensive backs coach at Mississippi State, was not present during the arrest and has not been implicated at this point.
The men who were arrested were identified as 33-year-old Price Montgomery and 35-year-old James Perrin. Along with the cash, jewelry and drugs, which were packed in 75,000 stamped bags, police and DEA agents also seized 16 firearms, two vehicles, Cuban cigars and a live chicken, according to the report.
