CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – A federal grand jury returned a four-count indictment charging Rashad Mathews, 28, of Youngstown, with drug trafficking and firearms violations, U.S Attorney Carole S. Rendon said.
Prosecutors say Mathews had several pistols and a rifle despite a 2007 felony conviction in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court that would make firearm possession illegal.
He is also accused of selling marijuana in 2015.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David M. Toepfer.
