Allen was arrested back in January of 2019 after Bensalem Township investigators executed a search warrant at an apartment on Konefal Street in Bensalem. Authorities say the warrant stemmed from an investigation that began in Nov. 2018 after officers received a number of complaints of loud parties and a constant smell of marijuana coming from that apartment.
During their search, authorities say they discovered approximately five pounds of marijuana, scales, packaging material, and over $33,000 cash in the apartment. They also found a .40 caliber Glock handgun that had been reported stolen.
Allen was arrested, along with Stephanie Sibounheuang. Sibounheuang pleaded guilty in 2019 to possession of a controlled substance and was sentenced to six months probation.
