State College man accused of firearms violation

A State College man was indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury for the prohibited possession of firearms and ammunition.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Dennis Lowe allegedly sold a military-style rifle and several hundred rounds of ammunition in March despite being prohibited under federal law based on a 2014 conviction for illegally possessing firearms.

Lowe is also alleged to have possessed, sold and offered for sale additional handguns since July 2015, the Department of Justice news release said.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Geoffrey MacArther, the release said.
