BUFFALO – The federal sentencing for Beau K.C. Jones, 34, of Jamestown was adjourned Tuesday to Nov. 2, according to Barbara Burns, Public Information Officer for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo.
Burns told WNYNewsNow that his sentencing for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and distribution of, methamphetamine was previously scheduled for 11 a.m. today.
Beau Jones faces a minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum of life, and a $10,000,000 fine.
On Dec. 1, 2016, authorities said Jones’ brother, Matthew S. Jones, received a shipment of 360 grams of methamphetamine via the U.S. mail, to his residence at 70 Colfax Ave., Jamestown.
After the delivery, Beau Jones was arrested during a car stop by police and the parcel containing the methamphetamine was discovered in the backseat of his vehicle, according to information released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo.
Matthew 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, according to authorities.
Matthew Jones was sentenced earlier this year to 8 and 1/3 years in prison.
Jamestown Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration collaborated in the investigation.
