Two men from Palm Coast and Bunnell have been found guilty of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances by a federal jury.

Alfred Lamar Shavers, 49, from Bunnell, and Tyrone James Jones, 56, from Palm Coast, were both charged on Feb. 23, alongside seven co-conspirators in a superseding indictment resulting from a joint, multi-state investigation, a press release from Florida's Middle District's United States Attorney office said. Their sentencing hearings have been scheduled for May 28, 2024.

The case was part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force operation and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michael Sartoian and Special Assistant United States Attorney Matthew Del Mastro.

Both Shavers and Jones were convicted of other charges as well, the press release said. Jones was also convicted of distributing methamphetamine on two separate occasions and Shavers of possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. 

According to trial evidence, Shavers and Jones were local drug dealers and part of a drug trafficking organization that imported meth and cocaine from Mexico into California, Arizona and across the U.S., the press release said.

Investigators executed six search warrants in October 2022 in Palm Coast, Bunnell and Daytona Beach, including at  Shaver's home. 

Multiple agencies worked together during the investigation, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, and the Volusia Bureau of Investigation, the press release said.
