TUNKHANNOCK, Pennsylvania — This guy must have skipped the part about swearing to uphold the law.
A Pennsylvania constable has been charged with selling crystal meth to police informants and now prosecutors are seeking to have him removed from his job.
Shane Ryan Fryer, 31, was arrested on Dec. 7 after allegedly selling drugs to the informants twice from a shed outside his home in Laceyville, the Wyoming County district attorney said, according to the Scranton Times-Tribune.
Cops say when they searched Fryer’s home the day after he made one of the sales, he stood and watched while wearing his badge and carrying his sidearm.
Last week, DA Jeff Mitchell filed a petition with the court to have Fryer removed from his post.
Mr. Fryer was elected to the position as Windham Township constable and took office in January 2014. His term ends in 2020.
The petition called the constable position an important public one that “requires ethical conduct and the trust of the public.” If the allegations are proven, the petition said they represent, “a violation of the public trust and requires his prompt removal.”
