HANOVER TWP. — A father and his son climbed through an open window of a residence on Lee Park Avenue to use heroin, according to charges filed.

Stephen Brett Willis, 60, of South River Street, Wilkes-Barre, was charged with criminal trespass, criminal conspiracy to commit trespass and to possess a controlled substance.

Nigel C. Willis, 31, of West Walnut Street, Kingston, was charged with criminal trespass, criminal conspiracy to commit trespass, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The father and son were arraigned by District Judge Diana Malast in Plains Township on Friday and released on $5,000 unsecured bail each.

Donna Zavaskas told police Stephen Willis and her son were not permitted inside her residence in the 200 block of Lee Park Avenue. Zavaskas said she asked Kelly Brown, a neighbor, to have the two men removed.

Zavaskas identified Stephen Willis as her boyfriend.

Nigel Willis told police they did not burglarize the residence but entered Zavaskas’ apartment through an open kitchen window, according to the criminal complaint.

Police said in the complaint the two men appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance, and officers found a spoon and wax paper packets with white residence consistent with heroin on the kitchen counter.

Nigel Willis claimed he attempted to flush a broken syringe in a toilet, the complaint says.

Police allege Nigel Willis had a pill bottle containing one tablet of Clonezapam, which was prescribed to Debbie Willis.
