Two Pennsylvania men were attested in connection with alleged drug trafficking conspiracy in Pittsburgh, PA..
Police discovered : “1,500 bricks of heroin (75,000 stamped bags), 16 firearms, more than $100,000 in cash and jewelry, two luxury vehicles, Cuban cigars and a live chicken.” – Pennsylvannia Attorney General Monday Press Release.
The two men are Price Montgomery,33, and James Perrin,35, of Pittsburgh.
Considering a chicken was found by police, Palo Mayombe and Santeria worshipers frequently use ritual sacrifice before committing acts of crime and violence.
However, most good practitioners point out it is only the evil side of the religion which uses human victims instead of animal sacrifices.
A call to the Pennsylvania’s Attorney General’s Press Office could not comment at the time of this writing.
Perrin and Montgomery address unknown both face one count of possession of heroin, one count of possession with the intent to deliver heroin, one count of persons not to possess firearms, one count of criminal conspiracy and one count of corrupt organizations.
Allegheny County Chief Deputy Attorney General Michael Ahwesh of the Office of Attorney General’s Drug Strike Force Section will be the lead prosecutor for both men.
Both Montgomery and Perrin are being held in the Allegheny County Prison facility.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane heaped on praise for the: Pittsburgh Police Department, the Allegheny County Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Whose office and field work made the drug arrests and heroin investigation possible in the Pittsburgh region.
“They cannot speculate as to why defendants had a live chicken in their possession?” said Assistant Press Secretary Carolyn Meyer.
Pittsburgh Animal Control from Allegheny county took the chicken.
