Two brothers tried to sell heroin to undercover narcotics officers behind a Swissvale funeral home this morning, police say.
Dennis Burton, 29, and Scott Burton, 31, tried to sell 150 stamp bags of heroin before they were arrested by members of the district attorney's Narcotics Enforcement Team. Both brothers unsuccessfully tried to flee once members of the task force identified themselves, according to a criminal complaint.
Scott Burton worked at YouthPlaces, "an organization that attempts to provide a positive atmosphere for young people," district attorney spokesman Mike Manko wrote in an email.
The brothers were charged with delivery and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
