SCRANTON, Pa. - A federal grand jury has indicted three Monroe County men on drug trafficking and firearms charges.
Authorities say Deshaun Lipscomb, 24, of Bushkill, Pablo Martinez, 27, and Orrett Campbell, age 37, both of East Stroudsburg, conspired to sell marijuana and used weapons in the course of their conspiracy.
The charges are a result of a January 2016 drug deal that turned into a shooting, according to authorities.
The victim was shot twice and forced from a vehicle at a high speed.
The indictment also alleges that Lipscomb possessed a firearm while dealing heroin and cocaine, and that Martinez sold MDMA, commonly known as “Molly” or “ecstasy.”
If found guilty, the total maximum penalty under federal law is life imprisonment, a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine.
