BRADY TWP — More than a dozen baggies of suspected cocaine and a stolen handgun were seized and two wanted men arrested following a traffic early Sunday morning in north Butler County, authorities said.
Marquise McWhorter-Honay, 24, of Collingdale, Delaware County and Akeem Tyson, 23, of Riverdale, Maryland, are both being held in the Butler County Prison on felony and other charges. They also are being held on out-of-county warrants.
State police said the defendants were passengers in a sport utility vehicle that was pulled over around 3:05 a.m. on Route 8 in Brady Township for having an illegal license plat.
Tyson, a felon and a registered sex offender, was a front seat passenger and McWhorter-Honay was riding in the back seat. Police said they smelled a “strong odor” of marijuana coming from the vehicle.
