SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A Wilkes-Barre man has been indicted by a federal grand jury on drug trafficking and firearm charges.

Yard was previously convicted of a felony and was prohibited from having any guns or ammunition.
If found guilty, the maximum sentence for both crimes is 25 years in prison, a term of supervised release, and a fine.
