Jamestown Woman Sentenced For Role In Narcotics Sales

BUFFALO – A Jamestown woman is headed to prison for her role in drug sales.

U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced that Kylie Reeves, 31, who was convicted of conspiring to possess with intent to distribute, and distributing, 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, was sentenced to serve nine years in prison by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua A. Violanti, who handled the case, stated that Reeves was part of a drug trafficking ring led by co-defendant Rocco Beardsley. Reeves distributed methamphetamine and heroin for Beardsley, who controlled the supply and set the prices. Reeves also allowed Beardsley to utilize her residence in Jamestown and she communicated with others on his behalf.

In March 2020, Beardsley was arrested on New York State warrants following a traffic stop. Law enforcement officers recovered large quantities of methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine, crack cocaine, hydrocodone, and other controlled substances from Beardsley’s vehicle. Investigators then searched Beardsley’s residence, recovering methamphetamine, a glass plate with white powder material, digital scale, and $185 in United States currency.

Reeves and her three minor children also lived at the residence. Following Beardsley’s arrest, Reeves conducted drug trafficking activities on his behalf, communicating with co-conspirators, associates, suppliers, and customers in order to continue receiving proceeds. Beardsley was previously convicted and is awaiting sentencing.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Jamestown Police Department and the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force, under the direction of Jamestown Police Chief Timothy Jackson; the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Frank Tarentino, New York Field Division; and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Bryan Miller, New York Field Division.
