PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles man was sentenced to four years in prison for possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm, the Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Squad said. Olympic.

Brandon S. Jones, 30, of Port Angeles, pleaded guilty to the charges Thursday, OPNET said.

His sentence will be followed by 12 months of supervision by the Department of Corrections.

The conviction is the result of a June 2022 warrant roundup conducted jointly by OPNET and the state Department of Corrections, OPNET said.

Fifteen active DOC warrants were served during the operation and new investigations were opened, including that of Jones.

He was arrested at a residence on the 1100 block of E. Craig Avenue in Port Angeles, OPNET said.

A DOC search of the residence located suspected methamphetamine, a weighing scale, a bag of suspected fentanyl pills and a variety of ammunition, authorities said.

OPNET obtained a search warrant for the residence and said it found approximately 0.55 grams of suspected heroin, approximately 6.35 grams of suspected methamphetamine, packaging materials, various items of drug paraphernalia, a wad of cash in small denominations and a .22 caliber rifle.

Jones is a convicted felon due to a 2020 conviction for second-degree assault, OPNET said.
