HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on December 17, 2018, U.S. District Court Judge Sylvia H. Rambo sentenced Kevin O’Neal Thomas, age 33, of York, Pennsylvania, to 50 months’ imprisonment for possession of ammunition.

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, on June 21, 2017, Thomas possessed ammunition at Stockade Tavern, York, when Thomas shot a 9mm round into the floor of the bar. 

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the York City Police Department and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Meredith A. Taylor.

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 make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
