PROVIDENCE, R.I. – A Providence man today pled guilty in federal court to a charge of knowingly and intentionally distributing and possessing with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a methamphetamine mixture, announced United States Attorney Zachary A. Cunha.

According to charging documents, during a Rhode Island DEA Drug Task Force investigation that began in September 2021, members of the task force monitored transactions between Jamont Patrick, 30, and another person on November 3, 2021; during these transactions Patrick sold the individual a total of approximately 203 grams of methamphetamine pills.

On November 10, 2021, members of the task force conducted a court-authorized search of Patrick’s residence and seized approximately 189 grams of pills containing methamphetamine, two scales, and other items used in the distribution of narcotics.

Patrick is scheduled to be sentenced on July 14, 2022. The defendant’s sentence will be determined by a federal district judge after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney G. Michael Seaman.

The Rhode Island DEA Drug Task Force is comprised of personnel from the DEA; United States Postal Service Office of Inspector General; Rhode Island Attorney General’s Office Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation; Rhode Island State Police; the East Providence, Cranston, Coventry, Newport, North Kingstown, Pawtucket, Providence, South Kingstown, Warwick, West Warwick, and Woonsocket Police Departments; and Amtrak Police Department.
