A York man pleads not guilty to federal charges of distributing heroin and marijuana and possession of firearms. A federal grand jury indicted Brandon Dawson, 29, for distributing heroin and marijuana and possession of firearms on June 11, 2014.
According to United States Attorney Peter Smith, on October 23, 2013, the York County Quick Response Team executed a search warrant at Dawson’s apartment on Cottage Place, York, and allegedly found reinforced doors, surveillance cameras, heroin, marijuana, drug trafficking materials, ammunition, and a stolen firearm. Dawson has a prior federal conviction for drug trafficking and a firearms offense, which makes it unlawful for him to possess a firearm.
The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and York City Police Department and assigned to Special Assistant United States Attorney David Sunday, of the York County District Attorney’s Office.
If found guilty, Dawson could face a sentence of life in prison.
