Methamphetamine and Cocaine Probe Center at Jefferson Twp., Scranton

June 9 – Drug investigators from the State Police and the Lackawanna County District Attorney’s Office found more than a pound of methamphetamine and two ounces of cocaine this week, Dunmore State Police said Friday.

A total of four people are facing drug charges between two separate cases.

In one case, a month-long drug investigation resulted in a search warrant served Thursday at 4446 Hamlin Highway, Jefferson Twp. Inside, investigators found 550 grams of suspected methamphetamine, or more than a pound, and 30 grams of cocaine, or just over an ounce.

Three people in this case face drug charges. They are William Rave of Moscow, Donte Ingram of Philadelphia and John Tech of Carbondale, according to a press release on Friday.

In a separate case, state police and county detectives oversaw a controlled purchase of half an ounce of methamphetamine and one ounce of cocaine Thursday in the parking lot of the V-Spot Bar on Providence Road.

After the sale, state police said Nathaniel Cunningham of White Haven fled but was quickly caught.

Cunningham, 27, is charged with theft to avoid apprehension as well as multiple drug charges. Bail and preliminary investigation information was not immediately available.

Bail and preliminary hearing dates were also not immediately available for Rave, 28, Ingram, 29, and Tech, 46.
