Wilkinsburg man wanted in connection with police seizure of more than $120,000 in drugs


Police are looking for a Wilkinsburg man who they believe had more than $120,000 worth of drugs in his home during a search of his home on Friday.

A warrant was issued that day for Douglas Curry, 58, for trafficking in the proceeds of illegal activity, possession with intent to deliver, child endangerment and related offences.

Curry appeared on authorities’ radar in June when police reported finding crack cocaine on him during a traffic stop. No charges have been filed.

Wilkinsburg police said they continued to monitor Curry throughout the summer with the help of officers from the state attorney general’s office and Penn Hills detectives. During Friday’s search, police said they seized cocaine, crack, fentanyl, black tar heroin, crystal meth, K2 and marijuana from his home on Clark Street.

They also found a gun and $30,000, according to a news release. Curry was not at home at the time of the search, police said. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911.

A woman who was there faces similar charges. India N. Hill, 34, of Wilkinsburg, posted $20,000 bond and was released from the Allegheny County Jail on Saturday, according to online court records. She didn’t have a lawyer on the list. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for September 15.
