Suspected drug dealer arrested hiding in house



A suspected crack cocaine dealer was arrested Friday morning after drug officers found him hiding under garage bags and clothes in a bedroom closet of a Butler home, authorities said.
Mausee S. Brown, 34, was nabbed in a second-floor apartment during a warrant search at the house in the 300 block of Brown Street, where investigators believe he was using to sell drugs.
The Butler County Drug Task Force led the search that turned up nearly $5,000 in currency and other drug-related evidence.
“He’s a pretty good source of crack cocaine in town,” county Detective Tim Fennell, who heads the task force, said of Brown.
Two other men, including the apartment’s tenant, also were arrested in the search shortly after 6 a.m.
Fennell said officers for the past month have been conducting surveillance and making controlled drug buys at the apartment.
“We started looking at that house after neighbors complained about the constant flow of (suspected drug) customers, in and out,” he said.
Brown is in the county prison on $100,000 bail.
