Three Face City Drug Charges

Three Jamestown men are awaiting arraignment in city jail following a Friday evening drug bust.

Juan Aponte-Sierra, 22, Christian Marquez-Sierra, 18, and Josh Figueroa, 17, were each charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and second-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia after Jamestown Police investigators executed a search warrant at 218 E. Second St., Apartment 10 at 5:15 p.m.

An investigation into the sales and trafficking of heroin had revealed that the narcotic was being sold from the location. Members of the SWAT team assisted investigators with entry and once inside, the suspects were taken into custody.

Investigators located a large quantity of heroin and cash along with a shotgun and ammunition for the gun inside the apartment.

Anyone with additional information on the sales of illegal narcotics is asked to contact the JPD’s anonymous tip line at 483-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
