A McKeesport man was arrested this week after police discovered 500 bags of heroin packed into 10 bricks stamped with the phrase, “Play Dead” during a controlled buy.

State Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane’s office said Willie James Means Jr., 43, of McKeesport, is charged with possession of heroin, possession with the intent to deliver heroin, delivery of heroin, and criminal use of a communication facility.

The Office of Attorney General's Bureau of Narcotics Investigation, the Frazer Township Police Department and the North Versailles Police Department organized the operation.

Mr. Means was preliminarily arraigned before North Versailles Magisterial District Judge Robert Barner and held in the Allegheny County Prison, with a $25,000 straight bond.

A news release from the attorney general’s office said the investigation is ongoing, and that Mr. Means could incur additional charges.
