YORKVILLE – A Sandwich man was sentenced Feb. 19 to nine years in prison on drug trafficking charges after police found crack cocaine and other drug paraphernalia in his former Plano home.
Timothy A. Jefferies, 31, of the 300 block of Wentworth Drive in Sandwich, entered a plea agreement related to charges of unlawful possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance, according to a news release from Kendall County State's Attorney Eric Weis.
The plea deal stemmed from a search warrant that was executed in late 2017 on his residence in Plano. Police found crack cocaine, digital scales, multiple surveillance cameras and other drug paraphernalia during the search, the news release said.
Weis said police had found fewer than 20 grams of crack cocaine in Jefferies's possession.
"That's worth approximately $1,500 to $1,700, depending on how pure it is," Weis said.
Jefferies has a history of drug offenses, according to the news release. It includes deliveries to undercover police officers and multiple felony convictions in the past 10 years.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Frank Gorup. Jefferies was represented by attorney Liam Dixon.
