According to Bensalem police, neighbors made multiple complaints about excessive noise and a  constant odor of marijuana from his home. Police said an investigation that began in November led them to develop probable cause that Allen was selling marijuana. 

Police executed a search warrant on Sunday afternoon and found four pounds of marijuana, scales, packaging material, more than $30,000 in cash, and a stolen handgun, according to police.

6ABC reported that Allen grew up in Germantown and uses PnB as an acronym for the intersection of Pastorius and Baynton streets.
