35 year old Allen Nowlin was taken into custody Thursday when he brought $1300 worth of heroin into Blair County to be sold. Officers were led on a high speed chase into Cambria County before apprehending Nowlin. The pursuit began on Plank Road in Altoona where Nowlin threw a fully loaded, stolen 9mm semi-automatic handgun out his vehicle window while traveling at high speeds. The firearm was reported stolen through the Pittsburgh Police Department.
