A federal grand jury in Fresno returned a six-count indictment last week against a 28-year-old man accused of trashing and stealing from a residence in Yosemite National Park while staying there without the owner’s permission during the summer of 2021, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced in a news release.

Devin Michael Cuellar, whom the release identified as a transient convicted felon, was charged by the jury with being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, being a drug addict in possession of a sawed-off shotgun and ammunition, destruction of property, receiving stolen property, theft, and making a false statement to park rangers.
