Greenville man convicted of drug, gun charges in federal court
A Greenville man has been convicted of gun and drug trafficking crimes in federal court.
According to the release, 37-year-old Joshua Peters was convicted of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime and possession of a firearm and ammunition after a prior felony conviction.
Trial evidence showed that Peters had distributed cocaine and fentanyl from a Greenville home earlier this year.
The Mercer County Drug Task Force searched the home in March and found 34 grams of cocaine, six guns and more than $2,500 in cash.
This case was part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, a program bringing together various levels of law enforcement and the community to make neighborhoods safer.
