Carbon man admits to thefts, drug count

A Carbon County man entered guilty pleas in the county court on Tuesday to two theft counts and a drug charge.

Jeremy Scott Rawlins, 30, of Lansford, pleaded to one count each of theft, theft by receiving stolen property and possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

He was arrested on Jan. 24 by Summit Hill police for stealing two cameras from a residence along East Hazard Street. The second theft occurred on Nov. 23, 2016, in East Penn Township when he took a generator from a Eileen Hahn.

The drug count was the result of an incident on March 3 in Franklin Township in the parking lot of the Square One Market. State police at Lehighton found him asleep in a vehicle under the influence of a controlled substance.

Judge Joseph J. Matika accepted the pleas but deferred sentencing to a later date.
