WILLIAMSPORT - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Cody Drumheller, age 28, of Berwick, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on December 2, 2022, to 66 months’ imprisonment by United States District Court Chief Judge Matthew W. Brann for possessing firearms as a convicted felon.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, in July 2021, Drumheller possessed a stolen 9mm handgun and two sawed-off 12-gauge shotguns, in Berwick, Pennsylvania.  Drumheller is prohibited from possessing firearms based on prior convictions.        

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and the Pennsylvania State Police.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Geoffrey W. MacArthur prosecuted the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
