JAMESTOWN – A joint investigation into the sale and trafficking of heroin in the Jamestown area from two separate locations has led to the arrest of a city man, who was also arrested on drug-related charges in two other separate investigations during the past year.
According to Jamestown police, 52 year-old Jose Diaz-Solis was arrested Wednesday night, April 1, following an investigation by the Jamestown Metro-Drug Task Force, the State Police C-NET unit, and the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force.
Police say the arrest followed the search of two residences in Jamestown – one at 440 Buffalo St. and the other at 241 Crescent St. Police say the two residences were targeted after authorities learned heroin was allegedly being sold out from both locations.
While at the residence on Buffalo St., police took Diaz-Solos into custody and charged him with Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance. Officers say a quantity of suboxone was also found inside the residence.
Police say the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected. Anyone with information into the sale and trafficking of illegal narcotics should call the JPD’s anonymous tip line at 483-Tips (8477).
