The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania last week said Jeffrey Scott Jones, age 62, pleaded guilty before United States District Court Judge Matthew W. Brann to the distribution of a controlled substance that resulted in the death of a Bloomsburg man in 2016.

United States Attorney David J. Freed says Jones sold heroin laced with fentanyl to a Bloomsburg man in July 2016, at which time the victim consumed the heroin and fatally overdosed.  

Jones faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in prison and a potential life sentence as well as a maximum fine of $1,000,000. 

The case was investigated by the Scott Township Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
