BUFFALO – A former Jamestown resident has plead guilty to selling methamphetamine.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo says 25-year-old Evan Motherwell, now of Penfield, Pa., plead guilty Tuesday to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute, and distributing, 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.
Prosecutors say between September 2018, and January 2019, Motherwell allegedly worked with Douglas Beardsley and others, to sell methamphetamine and heroin/fentanyl for profit.
Motherwell would, prosecutors allege, go to Beardsely’s residence to pick up bundles of heroin and “blacks” (approximately 3.5 grams) of methamphetamine.
Beardsley then, police allege, fronted the narcotics to the defendant and when Motherwell failed to pay, Beardsley would get mad and try to fight him.
During the conspiracy and afterwards, the Motherwell then, prosecutors explain, use Facebook to conduct drug trafficking activities, including communication with co-defendants.
Co-defendants Tracey Wynn, Richard Dean, Daniel Harding, and Justin Cusimano were previously convicted and are awaiting sentencing. Charges remain pending against co-defendants Douglas Beardsley and Angelo Pollino.
