mt_wash_bustAccording to CBS Pittsburgh,  police found 1,500 heroin bricks at the home of former Steelers cornerback DeShea Townsend.

Police arrested two men as part of a large heroin bust on Mount Washington Sunday night.

According to the Attorney General’s Office, two men were arrested at a home on William Street.

The suspects have been identified as 33-year-old Price Montgomery and 35-year-old James Perrin.

Law enforcement and the DEA seized 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.

Even though the home is owned by Townsend, it doesn’t look like he was there.  He’s currently the cornerbacks coach at Mississippi State University.

Allegheny County property records show that former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Deshea Townsend owns the house, but there is no indication that he is involved.
