BUFFALO – A Jamestown woman has been sentenced for helping an alleged drug dealer sell meth and heroin.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 30-year-old Chelsey Hunt, who was convicted of maintaining a drug-involved premises, was sentenced to time serve and three years’ probation on Tuesday.
Prosecutors say between January and December 2018, Hunt rented the second floor of a residence on Linden Avenue in Jamestown. While living there with her children, Hunt allowed co-defendant Douglas Beardsley to live in the attic.
Beardsley allegedly conducted a methamphetamine and heroin trafficking operation from the attic. Hunt took an active role in assisting the operation, such as helping with Beardsley’s customers and providing information about police activity around the residence.
Hunt also, prosecutors say, sold small amounts of narcotics for Beardsley and purchased narcotics for her personal use as well.
Charges remain pending against Beardsley.
