KINGSTON - State drug agents arrested three more people linked to a cocaine and marijuana trafficking ring out of a barber shop on Hazle Avenue in Wilkes-Barre.

John Allan Miller, 26, of Plymouth, Keith Wasiakowski, 26, of Nanticoke, and Brandon Richard Hynes, 23, of Ashley, were arraigned on drug trafficking charges this afternoon by District Judge Paul Roberts in Kingston.

They were jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $1 million bail each.

Miller, Wasiakowski and Hynes are among five people arrested Thursday when drug agents with the state Office of Attorney General Bureau of Narcotics Investigation, Luzerne County Drug Task Force and Kingston police served search warrants at Idley’s Furniture Store and The Master Barber Shop on Hazle Avenue in Wilkes-Barre, an apartment at Mayflower Crossings on South Empire Street, Wilkes-Barre, and a residence in Mountain Top.

Arrest papers say Ramon Colon and Miller frequently communicated through phone calls and text messages about the delivery of cocaine and marijuana.
