Cape Girardeau man sentenced to prison on crack cocaine charge
A Cape Girardeau man was sentenced Wednesday for possessing more than 50 grams of cocaine base with the intent to distribute, federal prosecutor Catherine L. Hanaway announced in a news release.
Jason James Jones, 21, was sentenced to 120 months in prison on one felony count of possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of cocaine base. He appeared before U.S. District Judge Charles A. Shaw.
On Sept. 4, members of the Cape Girardeau Police Department and the Southeast Missouri Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at Jones' residence on Larkspur Court in Cape Girardeau. Officers found more than 200 grams of cocaine base in the home. Jones admitted that the cocaine base was his.
