Feds Sentence Jamestown Barber In Cocaine Trafficking Case

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.


  1. That’s it? 4 years? This criminal has sold drugs in Jamestown his life. His entire life. He’s been a nuisance and a danger to the public. So our lousy DA probably botched this one too. Another liberal sentence. So in 2-3 years this guy will be on parole and back in town selling his drugs. Thanks! And what about his girlfriend? She sells drugs too. The girl is just like him & we don’t see her going to prison like she should be!! This is a joke & mockery of our justice system!! Sickening!!

  2. That’s funny 48 months=4 years less with good time for being an godfather in the local bloods gang, a pimp..yes destroying and beating the life’s of young white girls, and trafficking way more drugs than they found, how many fake front corps to. Wash money and that’s all they found? Charged? And sentince to? They only figured out one piece of the puzzle. Makes me sick and ashamed of the corrupt b.s. I’m made to pay for..wait till he brings home all the new connections he makes…
