PORTLAND — A Georgia man faces between 10 years and life in prison after a jury in federal court this week convicted him on drug trafficking charges.

Leonard Jones, 30, was found guilty on Wednesday of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine and Ecstasy.

Jones transported the drugs from Georgia to the Lewiston area between 2006 and April of 2008, according to Paula Silsby, U.S. Attorney for Maine. Jones made at least 14 trips to Maine. He and local dealers trafficked drugs out of seven different apartments in and around Lewiston, Silsby said in a media release.

A sentencing date has not yet been set. The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Lewiston Police Department, the Maine State Police and the Central Maine Violent Crimes Task Force.
