NEW CASTLE Three face hearings on drug charges

Police said drugs apparently were thrown out of a second-story window.
NEW CASTLE, Pa. -- Preliminary hearings are set for three people police arrested after finding drugs and guns at a west side home they were in over the weekend.
U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency agents and city police went inside 1024 Glenn Ave. and found assault-style weapons, high-powered rifles with scopes and silencers, shotguns and pistols.
A city police dog also found packets of suspected cocaine, heroin and marijuana, police said.
There were 12 people in the house when police arrived at 6:54 p.m. Saturday after it was reported that shots were fired at a man running from the home and three others were following him.
Police said when they arrived, a woman answered the door. Police then saw several men milling around the kitchen area and heard noise upstairs.
Officers reported seeing several guns stacked next to the refrigerator. Police said they went upstairs and found more guns and small bags of drugs that later tested positive as crack cocaine.
A police dog found more drugs outside that were apparently thrown from a second-story window, police said.
Police took all 12 people into custody, but ended up arresting only three people.
Anthony Jones, 34, Tiffany Johnson, 20, and Edward Deitrich, 38, all of 1024 Glenn Ave., were each charged with two counts of criminal conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, possessing prohibitive offensive weapons and one count each of possession of marijuana.
All three were arraigned before District Justice J.V. Lamb. He set bond for Jones and Johnson at $150,000 each and Deitrich was given a $50,000 bond. Preliminary hearings are set for 9:30 a.m. Thursday in Lawrence County District Court.
The other people in the house were released without charges. Police said most were from Detroit.
