Three people were cited on drug related charges in three separate incidents last week.
Douglas J. Schartel, 35, of Tamaqua, was cited on Jan. 30 after he was found to have a syringe in his pocket while being taken to the local district magistrate’s office by a constable.
He was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia.
Dane K. Lowell, 19, of Arlington Street, Tamaqua, was picked up by a constable on Feb. 1 to be transported to the magistrate’s office. His right front pocket contained a glass jar, which Lowell admitted contained marijuana.
