Three Monroe County men indicted on drug and firearms charges

SCRANTON - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Deshaun Lipscomb, 24, of Bushkill, Pablo Martinez, 27, and Orrett Campbell, 37, both of East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, were indicted on February 7, 2017, by a federal grand jury on drug trafficking and firearms charges.

The indictment alleges that Lipscomb, Martinez, and Campbell conspired to traffic marijuana and used firearms during the course of that conspiracy. The charges stem from a drug deal that turned into a shooting in East Stroudsburg in January 2016. The victim of the shooting suffered two gunshot wounds and was forced from a vehicle travelling at high speed. 

The indictment further alleges that Lipscomb possessed a firearm in furtherance of heroin trafficking and trafficked heroin and cocaine, and that Martinez trafficked MDAM, commonly known as “Molly” or “ecstasy.”
