BUFFALO, NY (WNY News Now) -A Jamestown man is facing up to 50 years behind bars after pleading guilty to a methamphetamine conspiracy in the City of Buffalo

57-year-old Jamestown resident, Austin Gordon, has pleaded guilty to participating in a methamphetamine conspiracy in Buffalo, NY.

Gordon admitted to conspiring to possess and distribute five grams or more of methamphetamine, as well as being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua A. Violanti, the conspiracy took place between June and December 2019, during which Gordon engaged in the buying, selling, and distribution of methamphetamine in the Jamestown area. Notably, he utilized Facebook to facilitate his drug trafficking activities.

The investigation led to the discovery of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and $1,476 in cash at a Bishop Street residence in Jamestown on July 16, 2019. A subsequent search warrant executed on Gordon’s Newland Avenue residence on November 29, 2019, yielded 32 grams of methamphetamine, illicit mushrooms, $1,642 in cash, two firearms, and 454 rounds of ammunition. As Gordon had previous felony convictions in Chautauqua and Cattaraugus County Courts, he was prohibited from possessing firearms.

Gordon’s sentencing is scheduled for November 7, 2023, where he faces a mandatory minimum of five years and a maximum of 50 years in prison for his role in the conspiracy.
