Both Burton and Malia were taken to the Luzerne County Correctional facility on $200,000 bail according to officials.
Malia was charged with two counts of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver narcotics and possession of a controlled substance.
Burton was charged with three counts of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver narcotics, three counts of criminal use of a communication facility, and other related charges.
