Parolee charged with drug offenses

NEW CASTLE — An East Side resident on federal parole is wanted on drug charges.

The Lawrence County District Attorney’s office has charged Jermaine Lagene Flamer, 36, of 1214 E. Washington St., with two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count each of possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Officers of the district attorney’s Drug Task Force obtained a sealed search warrant Thursday to search Flamer’s first-floor apartment. During the search that began around 6:30 a.m. Friday, officers said, they found two 8-mg. packets of Suboxone, eight syringes, a spoon containing a Roxicodone tablet and a red shoe string commonly used as a tourniquet, a small bag containing marijuana and loose marijuana.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

District Attorney Joshua Lamancusa said Monday it will be up to federal authorities to decide whether to revoke Flamer’s federal parole.

Penguins, in five games or fewer. Too much firepower for the Blue Jackets, especially if Evgeni Malkin is ready to go.
Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
