BUFFALO – A 60-year-old Jamestown man has pleaded guilty as part of a drug trafficking ring in our region.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo announced the plea on Wednesday.







Prosecutors accused Kevin Hughes of accepting packages containing narcotics to his Jamestown home via U.S. mail as part of a larger drug operation allegedly working with Jun Martinez, his co-defendant who has already been convicted in the case.

The duo were arrested together during a traffic stop in Illinois, when police recovered nearly 10,000 grams of meth, over 3,000 grams of fentanyl, 2,000 grams of cocaine and various  marijuana products.







Hughes is scheduled to be sentenced in the case in November, and could face a $10 million dollar fine and life in prison.
