Woman tied to Jamestown meth ring sentenced
JAMESTOWN — A 26-year-old New Jersey woman was sentenced to five years in prison for her role in a “major Jamestown area methamphetamine ring,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Monday.
Alexis Hall was sentenced before U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo following a conviction on conspiring to possess with intent to distribute, and distributing, 5 grams or more of methamphetamine.
Between March 2017 and October 2018, Hall allegedly conspired with 15 other co-defendants to operate a drug trafficking organization, primarily involving the distribution of methamphetamine, in the Jamestown area. During the execution of search warrants throughout the investigation, law enforcement officers recovered 10 firearms and multiple rounds of ammunition, over 20 cellular telephones, drug paraphernalia, and U.S. currency.
All 16 defendants charged in this case have been convicted. Hall is the seventh defendant to be sentenced.
