Convicted Jamestown Area Drug Dealer To Spend 2 ½ Years Behind Bars

BUFFALO – A convicted Jamestown area drug dealer will spend two and a half years behind bars.

The U.S. Attorney in Buffalo says 28-year-old Shaquelle Coleman was sentenced on Wednesday.

Coleman was convicted of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine following a 2019 drug raid in Jamestown.

At that time, Coleman was arrested with Earl Stone Jr. for violating terms of their parole.

While searching the upstairs bedroom of a residence West 7th Street, detectives with the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force recovered a quantity of suspected crack cocaine, a digital scale with white residue and $1,400 in cash.

Stone was previously convicted and sentenced to serve 32 months in prison.
