According to a report by KDKA-TV, police have arrested two men as part of a large heroin bust that took place at a home that property records indicate is currently owned by former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Deshea Townsend.
1,500 bricks of heroin, 16 firearms, more than $100,000 in cash and jewelry, two luxury vehicles, Cuban cigars and a live chicken were reportedly seized during the bust and there’s no indication that Townsend is involved.
Townsend, who is currently the cornerbacks coach at Mississippi State University, played 12 seasons in Pittsburgh for the Steelers after being drafted in the fourth-round of the 1998 NFL Draft out of Alabama.
Even minus the chicken, that’s one heck of a bust and you can bet that Townsend will be asked to comment on the situation soon. For his sake, let’s hope that he didn’t have any knowledge that any of this was going on.
