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.
