State police are seeking a suspected crack cocaine dealer after they say a search of his home in Butler turned up drugs and a rifle.

Bryan Andrew Perri, 28, is wanted on a felony arrest warrant that police vice officers obtained Tuesday.

Perri earlier this year became the target of a drug trafficking investigation. Police said they learned that he was selling crack cocaine from his home on the 100 block of Mercer Street.

They also believed he had guns in his house. Already a felon, the defendant is prohibited from possessing firearms.

During the investigation, according to court documents, a police informant in August bought crack at Perri's house as part of a controlled drug buy.
