HARRISBURG -- The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Donnell Thomas, 26, of Steelton, Pennsylvania, was indicted today by a federal grand jury.

The indictment charges Thomas with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking, possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number.

The charges against Thomas are a result of allegations that in February 2013, he attempted to ram a vehicle being driven by uniformed officers from the Harrisburg Police Bureau. He then fled from those officers but was ultimately apprehended after discarding a firearm with an obliterated serial number from the waistband of his pants. Upon his arrest, bags containing an alleged controlled substance were seized from his person and his vehicle.

The case is being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives and the Harrisburg Police Bureau.Harrisburg man charged with federal gun crimes
