Isiah Pettis, 21, who is charged with distribution and conspiracy to distribute cocaine and heroin, was arrested Tuesday morning in the 1100 block of Reading Avenue with a home-detention ankle bracelet noticeable. Pettis is the younger brother of Shawn Pettis, named as a high-ranking member of 800 Blok, who was arrested in February after the investigation revealed he bought a stolen gun and allegedly was planning to kill a man.
