A Pottsville man has been indicted on federal charges of trafficking cocaine and methamphetamine as well as possessing an illegal gun.

According to information released today by the US Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, Casian Amir Jackson-Flowers, 21, of Pottsville, was indicted by a federal grand jury on Tuesday.

Formally, Flowers will be charged with:

  • Possession with intent to distribute cocaine and methamphetamine
  • Possessing a Ruger P89 8mm pistol in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime

US Attorney John C. Gurganus adds the pistol had an “obliterated” serial number. Assistant US Attorney James Buchanan is prosecuting the case against Flowers, a Justice Dept. release indicates.

The FBI, Schuylkill County District Attorney’s Office and the Pottsville Police Dept. assisted in the investigation of Flowers. And this case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, which the Dept. of Justice renewed back in 2017.

Flowers, if he’s convicted on these charges, faces a maximum charge of life in prison, per federal sentencing guidelines but that doesn’t mean the sentence is mandatory.
