JAMESTOWN – A businessman who was caught with more than four ounces of cocaine in a multi-agency raid last year, will spend the next several years of his life in federal prison, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo.
“He was convicted and sentenced to 48 months in prison, said Barbara Burns, Public Affairs Officer, United States Attorney’s Office, when reached by email.
Odessin McBride, 38, was arrested when local and federal drug agents raided his Sampson Street residence last May.
McBride was charged with second degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, third degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminally using drug paraphernalia, and endangering the welfare of a child.
Inside of the residence, investigators found 130 grams of cocaine and 25 grams of crack cocaine, as well as of cash, drug paraphernalia, and a set of brass knuckles.
A four-year-old child was also inside of the residence.
Police also recovered four digital scales and a shrink-wrapping machine in the kitchen.
An advanced search of the property revealed drugs and packaging equipment buried in the backyard.
The search warrant was executed by the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force, the New York State Police Community Narcotics Enforcement Team, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Jamestown Police turned Mcbride over to feds last May in hopes of securing a stiffer sentence.
