York man sentenced to probation in meth-related case

YORK – David Burling, 55, of York, has been sentenced to traditional probation in a case related to possessing methamphetamine.

He was sentenced in York County District Court this week.

Burling earlier pleaded no contest to attempted possession of methamphetamine, a Class 1 misdemeanor. The charge was reduced from a felony as part of a plea agreement.

The case began when the York Police Department was conducting a shoplifting investigation and searched a resident in York. During that search, Burling was found at the residence.

During a search of a bed, on which Burling was occupying (according to court documents), officers found a pipe which contained methamphetamine, a metal canister containing methamphetamine and 100 unused narcotic sale baggies.

In another room, officers found drug sale baggies, a glass pipe with methamphetamine and other paraphernalia.

This week, he was sentenced to two years of probation to include 42 days in jail. The jail time, however, was ordered to be served in two 21-day stints in the future, which can be waived if he is found to be in compliance with the terms of his probation.
