“There were six officers in our backyard. They said they were dealing with an incident next door,” he recalled.
According to court documents, Goldshtein accepted mail post office inspectors were watching. After he took it in his house, agents moved in. Keane could hear the glass shattering as they went into his neighbor’s home.

“It was scary. One of the neighbors called and said what is going on out here,” Keane said.
Police told KDKA Thursday night they spent hours going in and out of the house after some type of military weapon or ammunition was found inside. Court papers made no mention of this.
Investigators allegedly found almost 400 grams of meth and accuse Goldshtein of admitting to selling and receiving meth.
“You don’t expect this down here. This is a nice neighborhood. Great neighbors. Kind of shocking when it does,” Keane said about his neighborhood.MORE NEWS: Child Tax Credit: When Will You Get Your First Check?
