Aaron Amuso of Canonsburg, charged with felony drug possession in Summit Township.

SUMMIT TWP — An anonymous tip led to the arrest of a Washington County man and the seizure of about an ounce of methamphetamine, more than 100 ecstasy pills and other suspected drugs and contraband at a township trailer home.

State police said Aaron M. Amuso, 30, of Canonsburg was visiting the home of a friend when troopers came knocking Tuesday afternoon. He was also carrying nearly $1,200 in currency.

Investigators said the arrest followed a tip that came into the police vice unit claiming the defendant was at the mobile home, located in a trailer park on Kilroy Lane, and he was in possession of “a large quantity” of meth and ecstasy.
