Cocaine, Brass Knuckles Found in Home Search, Police Say

Phoenixville Police executed the search warrant late last month.

A 21-year-old Phoenixville man faces drug charges after police found cocaine, marijuana, and a pair of brass knuckles during a search of his Penn Street home, according to police.

According to court documents, on Jan. 31 at 6:30 p.m., Phoenixville Police executed a search warrant on a home at 123 Penn Street.  In the defendant’s bedroom, police say they found a baggie containing cocaine in a dresser drawer next to a pair of brass knuckles. Next to a television, officers said they then found marijuana seeds.

Based on this evidence, on Feb. 7 police filed a weapons charge against the man as well as additional counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. He faces preliminary hearing on March 7.

This RENTER family has been harassing the neighborhood for quite a while...why they are still allowed to live there is a mystery. The landlord needs to be fined.

Fined for what? Why would a landlord ever be responsible for the behavior of a tenant?

While I agree with C.C. that the landlord is not responsible for tenant behavior, there likely is little screening that goes on before they get in the house. Generally landlords don't care - over on the north side, they suckle off the government teat and get their guaranteed Section 8 money every month, and they don't really care who is renting. There was a drug house near my mother's house, with people coming in and out all day and night. Nice way to destroy a neighborhood.
