Who says nosy neighbors aren’t a good thing? Now, 17,500 heroin bags are off the Pa. streets. And two residents of the home where the drugs were found — Sonnie Watts, 42, and Jessica Wainwright, 36 – have been arrested and charged in the case.
Who says nosy neighbors aren’t a good thing? After all, it was complaints from neighbors in western Pennsylvania that led to police seizing 17,500 stamp bags of heroin from a Pittsburgh home, landing two people in jail.
TribLive.com reports that those neighbor complaints caused Pittsburgh Police Department’s narcotics unit to search the home Sunday, turning up the 17,500 stamp bags, a 9mm pistol and “a large sum of cash,” according to a police spokeswoman.
Arrested in the raid were residents of the home, Sonnie Watts, 42, and Jessica Wainwright, 36, the website reports, adding:
Both were charged with possession with intent to deliver and possession of a controlled substance. Watts was also charged with a firearm violation.
Meanwhile, the street value of the heroin was estimated at $175,000.
But because of those nosy neighbors, those drugs are now off of the street.
