Pennsylvania man arrested after police raid

On April 17, a 29-year-old Pennsylvania man was taken into custody after police raided his Centre Township home and allegedly found drugs, firearms and an improvised explosive device, or IED. The raid took place at approximately 7:30 a.m.

According to a press release issued by authorities, officers from the Pennsylvania State Police and the Berks County Probation Office executed an arrest warrant at the defendant's home on the 800 block of River Road in Mohrsville. They obtained the warrant because the probation office was informed the man was in possession of a gun. During the arrest, officers claim they saw drugs, two long guns and an IED sitting in plain view. The IED was reportedly 3 inches thick and around 10 inches long. Officers from the Hazardous Device and Explosive Section of the Pennsylvania State Police were called to the residence to dispose of the device.

The defendant is facing multiple charges, including drug possession with the intent to deliver, possession of prohibited offensive weapons and reckless endangerment. The investigation has not yet been completed.

Individuals facing drug charges can be subject to serious consequences. For example, defendants could be sentenced to lengthy prison terms and assessed steep fines if they are convicted. However, a defendant may be able to obtain a better outcome by working with a criminal defense attorney. An attorney may be able to investigate the case and build a defense against the allegations to get the charges dropped. Under certain circumstances, legal counsel might arrange for a defendant to complete a substance abuse program instead of going to prison.
