Greenbelt, Maryland – United States District Judge Theodore D. Chuang sentenced James Emory Jones, Jr. a/k/a “Kirk,”  age 41, of Mount Rainier, Maryland to 126 months in prison, followed by five years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute one kilogram or more of phencyclidine (a/k/a “PCP”) and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
The sentence was announced by the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K. Hur; Special Agent in Charge Gordon B. Johnson of the FBI, Baltimore Field Office; and Assistant Director in Charge Nancy McNamara of the FBI, Washington Field Office.
According to his plea agreement, pursuant to court-authorized wiretap interceptions from June through October 2016, Jones was heard discussing distribution of cocaine base (a/k/a “crack cocaine”), cocaine, and phencyclidine (a/k/a “PCP.”)
On April 5, 2017, investigators executed a search warrant at Jones’s apartment in Mount Rainier, Maryland, where they recovered a loaded .38 caliber revolver, a loaded .40 caliber semiautomatic pistol, a shoulder holster, and a shotgun. In addition, agents recovered more than one kilogram of PCP, ten empty glass vials, a plastic dropper (typically used to distribute PCP), a quantity of cocaine and crack cocaine, a digital scale, and $10,700 in U.S. currency.
Prior to April 5, 2017, Jones had sustained convictions for offenses punishable by more than one year of imprisonment, which made him ineligible to possess a firearm and ammunition.
United States Attorney Robert K. Hur commended the FBI Cross Border Task Force-Safe Streets, Prince George’s County Police Department, Metropolitan Police Department-District of Columbia, Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and Drug Enforcement Administration HIDTA for their work in the investigation. Mr. Hur thanked Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer Sykes and Nicolas A. Mitchell who prosecuted the case.
