An alleged drug dealer is now facing felony charges following a raid at a State College apartment complex.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's office identifies the suspect as 21-year-old Wesley Tse.

Officers say they confiscated drugs worth more than $60,000 along with nearly $30,000 in cash.

According to a news release from the attorney general's office, the haul includes 11 pounds of marijuana, 21 grams of ecstasy, 14 grams of cocaine and 17 grams of psilocybin mushrooms.

Tse was reportedly charged with three felony counts of possession with intent to deliver marijuana, Ecstasy and cocaine, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, one felony count of criminal conspiracy to deliver marijuana and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the attorney general's office, Tse is being held in the Centre County Correctional Facility on $50,000 cash bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Authorities say their investigation is continuing and that additional charges are expected. It's unclear whether other suspects may be involved.
