Police Find 1,500 Heroin Bricks, Live Chicken At Former Steeler’s Home

Deshea TownsendPittsburgh police made a huge drug bust at former Steelers cornerback Deshea Townsend’s home Sunday night and found a rather interesting item in the process.

KDKA.com reported that police arrived at Townsend’s home in Pittsburgh’s Mount Washington neighborhood and seized 1,500 bricks of heroin, 16 firearms, more than $100,000 in cash and jewelry, two luxury vehicles and a live chicken.

Yes, a live chicken.

Two men were arrested in the bust, although it remains to be seen how the chicken got caught up in their shady dealings. As for Townsend, county records show the house officially belongs to him, but there is “no indication” he is involved in the arrest.

Townsend won two Super Bowls in 12 seasons with the Steelers and currently is the cornerbacks coach at Mississippi State.
