RICHLAND TOWNSHIP, CAMBRIA COUNTY--- Richland Township Police arrested three wanted fugitives at the Hampton Inn over the weekend.

Edwardo Rodriguez of New York, Devon Dozier from Pittsburgh and Eddie Davis from Philadelphia were taken in to police custody.  Police were called to the hotel after a report of a disturbance, when police got there they noticed something unusual and the three men gave police fake names.

“We eventually determined they were all wanted in different locations,” said Detective Tom Keirn.  “We got a search warrant for the hotel room and found the heroin, phones, stamped bags and other items.”

Over $4,000 in cash was seized, several boxes of stamped bags labeled “The Kings,” and “New Arrivals,” were also seized.  Police believe they may have been selling out of the hotel for the last few days.

“It’s scary to see this amount of heroin being distributed out on our streets,” said Chief Mike Burgan.

Police said despite the three not being from the area they are known to the Cambria County Drug Task Force.

“They have previous connections to this area,” said Keirn.

Police said they are looking for other individuals who may be involved.
