Jamestown man sentenced to 100 months on meth conviction

A Jamestown man convicted on methamphetamine distribution charges after receiving the drug in the mail was sentenced Monday to 100 months in prison by U.S. Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo, U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. announced.

Matthew S. Jones, 32, was arrested Dec. 1, 2016, along with his brother, Beau K.C. Jones, 34, after they received more than 360 grams of methamphetamine through the mail at their Jamestown residence.

Shortly after the delivery, Beau Jones was stopped by police while driving with the package containing the methamphetamine in the back seat of his vehicle, prosecutors said. Matthew Jones was arrested later that day during a separate car stop. A safe in the trunk of Matthew Jones' car contained 80 more grams of methamphetamine.

Beau Jones was previously convicted and is awaiting sentencing.
