Jamestown Man Sentenced Federally On Drug Charge

BUFFALO –  U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. announced Monday the sentencing of a Jamestown man convicted for possession with intent to distribute “Molly”, a Scheduled I controlled substance. 
Barrett Johnson, 34, was sentenced to 30 months in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Adler, who handled the case, stated that the defendant sold MDA (“Molly”) on multiple occasions, at locations which included Johnson’s barbershop. The defendant would purchase “Molly” from co-defendant Richard Clarke and, in turn, sell the “Molly” to others, including co-defendant Joshua Castro.
Co-defendants Castro and Richard Clarke have also been convicted.
Today’s sentencing is the result of an investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Kevin Kelly, and the Border Enforcement Security Taskforce which includes the Ontario Provincial Police, Niagara Regional Police, Peel Regional Police, and Toronto Police Services.
