Police today found about 9,000 stamp bags of heroin known as "The Butler" with a street value of $135,000 in a Penn Hills house, state police said.

The investigation began in June and led police to the 100-block of Emrose Drive, where they also found $6,900, two handguns and a growing operation with seven marijuana plants, district attorney's office spokesman Mike Manko said.

Trey A. Clark, 22, has been arrested. Trooper Aaron Borello said he faces drug charges of possession with intent to deliver, possession and manufacturing.

At least one handgun was registered to Mr. Clark, the trooper said.

The district attorney's Narcotics Enforcement Team, state police, and police in McKees Rocks, North Versailles and Swissvale assisted in the investigation.
