BUFFALO – A Jamestown man convicted of drug trafficking was sentenced on Wednesday in a Buffalo courtroom.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 28-year-old Earl Stone Jr. a/k/a Ooh Wop will serve 32 months in prison after he was convicted of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.
Stone was arrested, with another absconding parolee, Shaquelle Coleman, in January 2019, for violating terms of parole.
Prosecutors say both were located in the upstairs bedroom of a residence on West 7th Street in Jamestown. Stone had what appeared to be floor insulation from the attic of the residence all over his clothing.
During a search of the residence, suspected crack cocaine was located in the attic.
A digital scale with white residue and three cellular telephones were also seized.
A review of the three cellular telephones recovered several text messages coordinating the sale of narcotics, prosecutors say.
Coleman was previously convicted and is scheduled to be sentenced on January 21.
