Providence Man Gets Six Years In Prison For Oxycodone Dealing

May 18, 2024

A Rhode Island man has been sentenced to six years in federal prison or selling oxycodone pills on multiple occasions to an undercover officer. 

Brandon Jones, 35, of Providence, received a six-year prison sentence, plus three years of supervised release, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts.

Jones pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Worcester to one count of possession with intent to distribute oxycodone and two counts of distribution of oxycodone in October 2023.

Law enforcement identified Jones as an oxycodone distributor in the Worcester area in July 2022.

Jones traveled to Worcester via rental vehicles daily to sell drugs throughout the area before going back to Providence.

Between October 2022 and January 2023, Jones sold oxycodone to undercover law enforcement officials, according to prosecutors.

Then, in February 2023, rental cars Jones had used were tracked to his supply source in New Jersey and New York.

Prosecutors say that when Jones was arrested in March 2023 he had 1,500 oxycodone pills in his possession.
