Jamestown Man Sentenced To 12-Plus Years In Prison For Drug Distribution

BUFFALO – A Jamestown man will serve more than 12 years in federal prison for distributing drugs.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that Kyle Kamholtz, 33, was convicted of possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine, and possessing of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, was sentenced Thursday.








Assistant U.S. Attorney Seth T. Molisani, who handled the case, stated that the defendant was identified as a methamphetamine distributor in the Jamestown, NY, area during an investigation that began in November 2017 by the Jamestown Police Department.

The investigation included a series of controlled purchases of methamphetamine from the defendant, several vehicle and traffic stops that resulted in Kamholtz’s arrest for possession of methamphetamine and a firearm, and the execution of two search warrants at the defendant’s McKinley Avenue residence. Investigators seized a firearm, methamphetamine, scales, packaging, and other drug distribution paraphernalia.









The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Jamestown Police Department, under the direction of Acting Chief Timothy Jackson, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge John B. Devito, New York Field Division.
