A search of the home yielded 11 heroin bundles wrapped in notebook paper, along with $1,800 in cash, West said.
Also allegedly found were three loaded handguns — one of which was an automatic pistol. One of the guns, West said, was reported stolen from Phoeniz, Ariz.
Officers seized the contraband, charged both with heroin trafficking and possession, and hauled the pair to the Erie County jail. Pace was additionally charged with having a weapon under disability, as he was indicted in December by an Erie County grand jury for heroin possession.
Hunter could also face weapons charges, as soon as West learns the status of a Michigan felony case against him.
And on Wednesday morning, officers arrested two other Sandusky men when they served a search warrant at a Wayne Street home.
Resident of the home Cordale Robertson, 35, was charged with cocaine trafficking and possession, marijuana possession, tampering with evidence and criminal tools possession.
Another man inside the home, Mark Milner, 55, 600 Hancock St., was charged with cocaine and marijuana possession and two counts drug paraphernalia.
As officers surrounded the residence, a detective spotted Robertson fling a plate of crack rocks onto the floor in an attempt to hide them, West said.
Officers then entered the home, seizing three grams of crack and more than $1,100 in cash.
They also found a digital scale, crack pipe and razor blades with suspected crack residue, West said.
Both men allegedly had marijuana as well, and Milner had a crack pipe on his person, West said.
They were held at the Erie County jail.
