Jamestown woman pleads guilty to narcotics charge
A Jamestown woman has pleaded guilty to selling methamphetamine, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.
Tracey Wynn, 38, entered the plea to a charge of conspiring to possess with intent to distribute, and distributing, 500 grams or more of methamphetamine before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said between September 2018 and January 2019, Wynn was allegedly a drug trafficking associate of Douglas Beardsley and sold methamphetamine supplied by Beardsley.
Wynn typically received methamphetamine from Beardsley to sell two or three times a week. During the conspiracy, the city woman and Beardsley would communicate often about the operation, including through their Facebook accounts.
On four separate occasions, Wynn allegedly sold methamphetamine to an individual working with the Drug Enforcement Administration. On Aug. 7, 2017, investigators executed a search warrant at her residence and recovered a quantity of methamphetamine, approximately $347 in cash, drug paraphernalia, and mail. Also inside the residence, investigators identified items indicating children lived at the residence.
The charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum of life, and a $10 million fine.
Charges remain pending against Douglas Beardsley.
Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 13 before Judge Arcara.
