BOSTON – A Providence man was sentenced today in federal court in Worcester for selling oxycodone pills on multiple occasions to an undercover officer.  

Brandon Jones, 35, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Margaret R. Guzman to six years in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release. In October 2023, Jones pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute oxycodone and two counts of distribution of oxycodone. 

In July 2022, Jones was identified as an oxycodone distributor in the Worcester area. Specifically, Jones traveled to Worcester in rental vehicles on a daily basis to sell drugs throughout the area before returning to Providence. On at least four occasions between October 2022 and January 2023, Jones met with undercover law enforcement to distribute oxycodone pills in controlled purchases. In February 2023, the rental cars Jones had been using were tracked to his supply source in New Jersey and New York. At the time of his arrest in March 2023, Jones was found in possession of approximately 1,500 oxycodone pills. 

Acting United States Attorney Joshua S. Levy; Stephen Belleau, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, New England Field Division; and Southbridge Police Chief Shane D. Woodson made the announcement today. Valuable assistance in the investigation was provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Rhode Island and the Rhode Island State Police. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristen M. Noto of the Worcester Branch Office prosecuted the case.
