Man charged with selling a lot of pot on ESU campus


EAST STROUDSBURG - Investigators from the Monroe County Drug Task Force with assistance from East Stroudsburg University Police and the Pennsylvania State Police executed a search warrant on a dorm room at East Stroudsburg University on Wednesday.

The search warrant was based, in part, on an investigation that began in September of 2016 after officers from East Stroudsburg University Police noticed a spike in the use of marijuana and drug activity on campus.

Jahmir Mapp, 18 of Lafayette Hill, PA, was identified as the lead supplier. He was arrested on charges for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, criminal use of a communication facility, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mapp admitted to officers that he sold marijuana to approximately a dozen students per day at specific “hot spots” on campus. Mapp admitted to using SnapChat to communicate and facilitate the sale of marijuana.

Mapp was arraigned and released on $5,000 unsecured bail. He will appear a preliminary hearing on January 31st.
