Vaughn Rico Wright, Michael William Long,Garnett Lee Long-Parham"The guns were all loaded ... and ready for use,"

A search turned up a loaded .40-caliber Glock handgun in the waistband of Long-Parham's pants, police said. Two more weapons were found near front-seat passenger Long and rear-seat passenger Wright, authorities said. "The guns were all loaded ... and ready for use," Seranko said. Greensburg police said they stopped a vehicle going the wrong way on a one-way street and arrested three Allegheny County men on drug distribution charges.
Authorities reported four pounds of marijuana, with a street value of about $6,000, nearly $1,400 in cash and three stolen handguns were seized during the traffic stop about 7:30 p.m. Saturday on West Otterman Street.
"Where they were going, we really don't know at this point," police Capt. George Seranko said during a news conference Monday.
Charged are Garnett Lee Long-Parham, 22, Michael William Long, 25, and Vaughn Rico Wright, 21, all of Wilkinsburg. Each faces charges of manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance, possession of both a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, firearms violations and receiving stolen property. Long-Parham also is charged with driving the wrong way down a one-way street.
Police said that after Patrolman John Swank stopped the vehicle, he discovered the car was a rental and that Long-Parham wasn't listed as an eligible driver on the rental agreement. Swank spotted suspected marijuana residue on Long-Parham's shirt, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Other officers arrived, drew their weapons after the handgun was found, and ordered the passengers out of the vehicle, police said.
Greensburg's police said their canine indicated the possible presence of drugs. The marijuana was found in a bag in the trunk, according to court papers.
A trace showed that the three weapons were reported stolen to Monroeville and Clearfield police, as well as state police at Kittanning. Also seized were a Springfield .45-caliber handgun and a .22-caliber Smith and Wesson.
Police said they found $442 on Long-Parham, $461 on Long and $467 on Wright, for a total $1,370. Long had four cell phones on him. Each was jailed in lieu of $50,000 after their arraignments in Westmoreland County Night Court on Sunday.
