City Man Sentenced For Role In 2016 Bust

Beau K.C. Jones

A Jamestown man will serve more than eight years in federal prison after being convicted on drug possession charges.

U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. announced the sentence Friday for Beau K.C. Jones, 34, who was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. Jones was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo in Buffalo.

Jones was arrested Dec. 1, 2016, along with his brother, Matthew S. 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 in 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 about 80 grams of methamphetamine.

Matthew S. Jones was previously convicted and also sentenced to serve 100 months in prison.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Jamestown Police Department.
