City Man Sentenced On Federal Charges

BUFFALO — Matthew S. Jones, 32, of Jamestown, who was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and distribution of, 5 grams or more of methamphetamine, will serve 100 months in prison.

Jones was sentenced in federal court by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura Higgins, who is handling the case, stated that the defendant was arrested on Dec. 1, 2016, along with his brother Beau K.C. Jones, after a shipment of more than 360 grams of methamphetamine was delivered, via the U.S. mail, to the brothers at Matthew S. Jones’ residence at 70 Colfax St., Jamestown. Shortly after the delivery, Beau K.C. Jones was arrested during a car stop by police and the parcel containing the methamphetamine was discovered in the backseat of his vehicle. Matthew S. Jones was arrested later that day during a separate car stop. A safe was found in the trunk of his car containing an additional quantity of approximately 80 grams of methamphetamine.
