CLEVELAND — A federal grand jury has indicted four Mahoning Valley residents on charges of being felons in illegal possession of a gun or ammunition, or both, the U.S. attorney said today.

The law prohibits convicted felons from carrying firearms or ammunition.

Kevin L. Washington, 26, of Boardman, is charged with having a 9 mm pistol and ammunition and possessing with intent to distribute about an ounce of heroin.

Washington previously had been convicted of aggravated robbery and felonious assault in Franklin County Common Pleas Court.

Anthony J. Schaffer, 24, of Canfield, and James L. Mosley, 32, of Youngstown, are charged with having handguns and ammunition, with the serial number allegedly obliterated from Schaffer’s gun.

Antonio S. Smith, 30, of Warren, is charged with possessing ammunition.

Schaffer, Mosley and Smith also have prior convictions.

The cases are being prosecuted by David M. Toepfer, the Youngstown-based assistant U.S. attorney.

The Boardman and Warren police, the Mahoning Valley Law Enforcement Task Force, the Ohio Adult Parole Authority and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms handled the investigations.
