Drug Supplier to Massena Sentenced to 36 Months

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Matik Jones, age 26, of Jersey City, New Jersey, was sentenced yesterday to serve 36 months in prison, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release, for intending to supply heroin and crack cocaine to the Massena area.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and James C. Spero, Special Agent in Charge for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

The sentence followed Jones’s November 24, 2015 guilty plea.

Senior U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr. sentenced Jones exactly one year after Jones’s arrest following a traffic stop in Massena, in which Jones was found to possess approximately 103 grams of crack cocaine and 25 grams of heroin.

This case was investigated by HSI and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Collyer.
