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.

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