Townsend is not thought to be a suspect in the case, but he owns the home at which two men were arrested in possession of heroin and firearms. Police raided a Mount Washington home owned by ex-Steelers cornerback Deshea Townsend Sunday, arresting two men and seizing 1,500 bricks of heroin and over $100,000 in cash and jewelry. Two luxury vehicles and a live chicken were also reportedly on the premises. The report was first posted by CBS Pittsburgh KDKA, and it confirmed Townsend owns the home, but was not a part of the bust. There is nothing more on the connection of the two men arrested at the home - Price Montgomery and James Perrin - and Townsend. Townsend, the cornerbacks coach at Mississippi State University, played 10 of his 11 NFL seasons for the Steelers, winning two Super Bowl rings after being the team's fourth round pick in 1998.
