Pa. man arrested at ‘going away’ party

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man who threw himself a going away party before his sentencing on drug charges was picked up on an outstanding warrant after police saw information about the party posted on flyers and his Facebook page.

Scranton Police Chief Dan Duffy says 28-year-old Keith Cardone was arrested early Wednesday during the party he threw for himself at a Scranton bar.

The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports Cardone is awaiting sentencing for his role in a drug ring that distributed $2.7 million in marijuana and cocaine in the area.

Duffy says two officers spotted ads for Cardone's "Going Away Ba$h" then picked him up on a warrant stemming from another drug charge.

Cardone is being held on $5,000 bail. It was not clear if he had an attorney.
