    Pennsylvania District Attorney Seeks to Have Constable Removed on Meth Charges

    A northeastern Pennsylvania prosecutor wants to remove from office a constable charged with selling crystal methamphetamine to an undercover informant.

    Thirty-one-year-old Shane Fryer, of Laceyville, was charged Dec. 7 by Wyoming County detectives. Now their boss, District Attorney Jeff Mitchell, has filed a court petition to remove Fryer from office.

    Fryer is elected and took office in January 2014. His term is believed to last through 2020.

    The DA's petition says Fryer should be removed because his job as constable "requires ethical conduct and the trust of the public."

    Fryer's defense attorney didn't immediately return a call for comment Monday. Fryer faces a preliminary hearing on the drug charges Thursday.
