Man Handed Drug Charge

WILKES-BARRE — One of the suspects involved in a drug and weapons case at a troubled housing complex in Wilkes-Barre has returned from New Jersey to face charges.

Authorities said Lashawn Burgman and a woman headed for New Jersey after Burgman accidentally shot himself in the leg at Sherman Hills in late December.

Police believe he and a woman have something to do with drugs that were found in an apartment at Sherman Hills.  Wilkes-Barre Police said the apartment was shut it down.

This is the first Sherman Hills apartment closed under the city’s new one strike ordinance meant to fight drug activity.
