UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - A University Heights man has been indicted after investigators found him with more than four pounds of heroin, 11 pounds of cocaine and 10 firearms.

Marcus Labrone Morris, 42, was charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, being a felon in possession of firearms, and operating the home at 3582 Farland Road as a drug house.

U.S. Postal Inspectors intercepted a package sent from California to 3598 East 147th St. in Cleveland on Oct. 3. The package was addressed to Mrs. Momma James. The package contained two kilograms of heroin – one kilogram a light gray powdery substance and the other kilogram a black tarlike substance, according to court documents.

The package was delivered and on Oct. 4, Morris took the target package from the porch on East 147th Street and placed it in the bed of his truck. Morris was arrested 20 minutes and the package was recovered. During a search of the Farland Drive home investigators found five kilograms of cocaine and 10 firearms and ammunition.

Morris is forbidden from possessing firearms because he was convicted of cocaine trafficking in 2001 in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.
