Police say a 23-year-old man cuffed Wednesday on misdemeanor drug charges in Brooklyn is also wanted in connection with a double homicide late last year in Pennsylvania.
Laquan Anderson Pierrelouis was arrested by gang unit officers who allegedly saw him buying something from another man at the Marcy Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant, according to the NYPD. Police allegedly found several pills on him, and and the 23-year-old was charged with misdemeanor drug possession.
Pierrelouis initially told investigators his name was Spencer Johnson and that he lived at the housing development, police say. When officers took the man’s fingerprints, they learned his real name, and that he was wanted for two killings in York, Pa., on Nov. 23.
According to WGAL-TV, Pierrelouis is wanted in connection to the deaths of 23-year-old Braydon Aldinger and 26-year-old Derek Ferree. York Police say the two men were both shot to death in a drug deal gone wrong.
It's not clear what crimes Pierrelouis will face in connection to the slayings. Attorney information for the man wasn't immediately available.
