An Erie, Pennsylvania, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury on a charge of bringing methamphetamine from Michigan to Erie on an Amtrak train in September.

Sean K. Williams, 30, was indicted on one count of possession with intent to distribute 500 or more grams of methamphetamine.

If convicted, he faces up to a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted in U.S. District Court in Erie.

A news release issued by federal prosecutors in Erie said Williams allegedly transported the methamphetamine to Erie from Dearborn, Michigan.

Pennsylvania State Police previously charged Williams with possessing 10 pounds of suspected methamphetamine.

Williams was arrested at the Erie Amtrak station and taken to Erie County Prison on $500,000 bond to await prosecution on charges including possession with intent to deliver and resisting arrest.
