Steelton man charged with gun and drug offenses


Steelton police have charged a man with selling drug and gun offenses. 

Police, the Dauphin County Sheriff’s Office, and members of the Dauphin County Adult Probation Office executed a search warrant at a home on the 100 block of Penn Street in the Borough. 

Police say it was part of an ongoing investigation into drug dealing that officers learned had been going on in the area. 

During the search, officers recovered a .40-caliber handgun, large amounts of marijuana and cash. 

Officers say Astian Young attempted to destroy evidence by flushing it down the toilet. He was arrested and upon further investigation, found he is currently a defendant in a Protection From Abuse Order which prohibits him from having a firearm.

He was charged with persons not to possess a firearm, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Young was taken to the Dauphin County Judicial Center for arraignment and for a probation detainer.
