Raid turns up gun, felon

NEW CASTLE — A drug raid at a Lower East Side house on Friday yielded only a gun and arrest of a previously convicted felon.

The raid, at 718 Erie Ave., was executed with a sealed search warrant by New Castle police narcotics officers, federal Drug Enforcement Administration agents and members of the Lawrence County Drug Task Force.

They entered the house around 9 a.m. yesterday and seized a gun, according to District Attorney Joshua Lamancusa, who said no drugs were found on the premises yesterday.

The suspect’s name was not available yesterday, as charges have not been filed.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
