A York man has been indicted on drug trafficking and firearms charges, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release.

Quan Leroy Gross, 44, was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Harrisburg, charging him with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, according to the release. The substance was crack cocaine, the release states.

The charges against Gross stem from allegations that he was involved with drug trafficking activities in York in June 2015, according to the release.

Gross was detained on Wednesday, and his trial has been scheduled for Sept. 12, the release states.

Gross faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison and a maximum of life imprisonment, according to the release.

Online court records indicate Gross remains in York County Prison after having his bail revoked June 29 for his aggravated assault and other charges in December 2015.
