FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 18, 2014

PITTSBURGH – A Pittsburgh resident has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of violating various federal laws, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

The three-count indictment named Tony Gay, 24, currently incarcerated, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, on Nov. 6, 2013, Mr. Gay possessed with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin, unlawfully possessed a Glock 9mm pistol and ammunition, and possessed that firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of up to 40 years in prison, a fine of $5,000,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Barbara K. Doolittle is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Pittsburgh Police, and the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
