House Owned by DeShea Townsend Part of $100K Drug Bust Near Pittsburgh
Police in Pittsburgh have arrested two men as part of a large heroin bust in a home owned by former Alabama defensive back Deshea Townsend.
According to CBS Pittsburgh, 1,500 bricks of heroin was seized, along with 16 guns and more than $100,000 in cash. The Attorney General’s office will release more details later this afternoon, but property records show that the house is owned by Townsend, who played 12 years with the NFL’s Steelers.
The former Alabama standout is now an assistant coach with the Mississippi State Bulldogs, so there hasn’t been any indication at this point that he knew about or had involvement with the drug operation.
