BUFFALO – A 34-year-old Jamestown man has been indicted in connection with two drug related deaths.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo announced the federal legal action against Steven Mojica Medina on Monday, who is accused of selling heroin and fentanyl that lead to fatalities in August and September 2018.
Prosecutors allege that Medina used his Euclid Avenue in Jamestown to peddle the drugs.
In addition to allegedly conspiring with others to commit the felonies, Medina also illegally used firearms to further his criminal activity. Medina is legally prohibited from possessing firearms due to a pervious conviction.
The charges carry a mandatory minimum penalty of 30 years in prison, a maximum of life, and a 1,000,000 fine.
Last week, federal prosecutors charged another Jamestown resident for allegedly “causing “serious bodily injury” as a result of his drug sales, connected to a separate case.
