Pottsville Man Indicted by Federal Grand Jury for Trafficking Cocaine and Methamphetamine

On Thursday, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that earlier this week, a Pottsville man was indicted by a federal grand jury for drug trafficking and firearm offenses.

According to United States Attorney John C. Gurganus, the indictment on November 16th, 2021 charges Casian Amir Jackson-Flowers, 21, of Pottsville, with possession with intent to distribute cocaine and methamphetamine. The indictment also charges Flowers with possessing a Ruger P89 8mm pistol, with an obliterated serial number, in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

The matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Schuylkill County District Attorney’s Office, and the Pottsville Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney James Buchanan is prosecuting the case.

According to the press release, 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.
