Joshua Gregory, of Wayne County, has been indicted by a federal 
grand jury in London on drug and firearm charges.  The indictment was 
handed down on Thursday, May 23.
    In count one, the grand jury alleges that on or about November 28, 
2018, Gregory did knowingly "possess with intent to distribute 50 
grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable 
amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance."
    Count two alleges that Gregory did knowingly possess a firearm "in 
furtherance of a drug trafficking crime for which he may be 
prosecuted in a court of the United States, that is,  the drug 
trafficking crime charged in count one of this indictment."
    Count three says that he allegedly "possessed in and affecting 
commerce firearms, to wit, a Kel-Tec, Model P3AT, .380 caliber 
pistol, serial number JSF45; a Kel-Tec, Model PF-9, 9 mm caliber 
pistol, serial number SWK79; a Springfield Armory Rifle, serial

SP248328; a Glock, Model 19, 9 mm caliber pistol, serial number 
VLE799; a Ruger Model SR9C, 9 mm caliber pistol, serial number 
336775571; and a Mossberg, Model 500, 20 gauge shotgun, serial number 
R287895, having been convicted in a court of a crime punishable by 
imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, and did so knowingly."
    Count four alleges that Gregory did knowingly possess a "firearm", a 
shotgun having a barrel of less than 18 inches of length, not 
registered to him in the Natioal Firearms Registration and Transfer 
    Approximately 8,475 rounds of assorted ammunition was also seized 
from the residence of Gregory, according to the indictment. He was 
arraigned in federal court on Wednesday, May 29 and  Willis G. 
Coffey was appointed as attorney. Gregory entered a not guilty plea 
and a jury trial has been set for July 9 at 9:30 a.m. in London 
before Judge Claira Horn Boom.
    The charges stem from an incident involving the Wayne County 
Sheriff's Department and DEA in November of 2018. A detention hearing 
has been set for June 6 in London before Judge Hanly A. Ingram and Gregory was remanded to custody.
