PITTSBURGH, PA -- A resident of McKeesport Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to one year and one day of imprisonment and three years of supervised release related to his possession with intent to distribute heroin and fentanyl and possession of a stolen firearm, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.
United States Senior District Judge Joy Flowers Conti imposed the sentence on Terrance Yarbrough, age 29.
According to information presented to the court, law enforcement executed a federal search warrant upon a McKeesport residence used by Yarbrough to distribute narcotics.

Following a waiver of his rights, Yarbrough admitted to distributing drugs from the residence, to possessing the firearm, and to knowing that the firearm was reported stolen.
Assistant United States Attorney Brendan J. McKenna prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
United States Attorney Chung commended the Drug Enforcement Administration and the McKeesport Police Department for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Yarbrough.
