Harrisburg man indicted on drug, firearm charges

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Harrisburg man faces decades in prison for illegal possession of firearms and distribution of synthetic marijuana.

Andre Hairston, 34, was indicted by a grand jury Wednesday on several charges, including illegal possession of four firearms, selling one of the firearms, possession with intent to distribute synthetic marijuana, and criminal conspiracy.

An investigation began last July after Hairston was arrested for a stolen handgun. That Investigation led to the discovery of three more stolen handguns and packaged synthetic marijuana that was ready for distribution.

If convicted, Hairston could face 10 years in prison for each stolen gun charge and up to 20 years for the drug-related charges.
