FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FORESTVILLE DRUG TRAFFICKER SENTENCED TO 135 MONTHS
BALTIMORE, Maryland - Anthony Jones, age 35, of Forestville, Maryland was sentenced today to 135 months in prison followed by 5 years of supervised release for narcotics conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute PCP, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
According to the statement of facts presented to the court on February 6, 2006 at his guilty plea, Jones conspired with others to distribute powder cocaine from at least January 2001 through December 2004. Jones was intercepted pursuant to two Court authorized wiretaps of other conspirators phones. During these interceptions, Jones discussed, among other things, the purchase price of kilogram quantities of cocaine and meeting at a house in Suitland, Maryland that the conspirators used to store and package cocaine for distribution.
The PCP charge stems out of Jones’s arrest on the conspiracy charge. According to the statement of facts presented to the court, in September 2005, federal law enforcement agents recovered approximately 118 grams of PCP during a search of Jones’s residence on the day of his arrest.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Drug Enforcement Administration for their investigative work, and commended Assistant United States Attorneys Sandra Wilkinson and Patrick M. Pericak, who prosecuted the case.
