ALBANY – A Gloversville man has been indicted on federal methamphetamine and firearms-related charges, U.S. Attorneys officials said Friday.

Kent Tucker, 23, of Gloversville, was indicted Thursday on charges of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.

Tucker is accused of possessing a Glock handgun stolen out of Gloversville and possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, both on Aug. 21, officials said.

He’s also accused in an earlier complaint of throwing the stolen firearm while being arrested, officials said.

If convicted, Tucker faces a maximum potential sentence of life in prison and a minimum of five years, officials said.

He has been ordered detained pending trial.

The case is being investigated by the ATF and the Gloversville Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alexander Wentworth-Ping.
