Meth Ice Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court
MOBILE, Ala. – Jonathon Blake Jones, 33, of Robertsdale, Alabama, was sentenced today in federal court to 120 months in federal prison for his role as a dealer distributing methamphetamine ice from 2009 through April of 2013. Court documents establish that Jones became involved in the distribution of the more potent form of methamphetamine, called “ice,” after initially becoming involved in manufacturing the drug locally. Jones was identified in an investigation conducted by the Baldwin County Drug Task Force, and he was ultimately arrested on federal charges when a federal search warrant was executed at his residence last year. During the execution of the warrant, investigators seized about a quarter-kilogram of methamphetamine ice, cash, a gun and a vehicle. Senior United States District Court Judge Charles R. Butler, Jr., imposed the sentence this morning. The judge ordered that Jones undergo drug treatment during the period of his custody and after his release on supervision for a 10-year term. No fine was imposed, but the judge ordered that Jones pay $100 in special mandatory assessments.
The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Baldwin County Drug Task Force and the Loxley Police Department. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney=s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
