Jamore Clark, 40, the head of a significant fentanyl trafficking organization in St. Louis was given a 15-year jail term. In January, Clark entered a guilty plea, admitting to owning more than 800 grams of fentanyl, selling fentanyl, and using weapons while engaging in these operations.

Fentanyl Trafficking Ring Busted: A Deadly Seizure and Swift Justice

On the day of Clark’s arrest, DEA agents recovered a stunning quantity of fentanyl, almost 45,000 fatal doses worth. This demonstrates the serious harm fentanyl does to St. Louis residents’ safety and health, increasing the rate of drug-related fatalities to frightening proportions.

Clark admitted guilt in January to the allegation of having more than 40 grams of fentanyl with the goal of selling it. In addition to entering guilty pleas, each of the nine co-defendants who were charged in the case were given penalties of up to 10 years in jail.

Analyzing this investigation together with the DEA was the St. Louis County Police Department. The operation is a part of the OCDETF, a multi-agency effort coordinated by prosecutors and based on intelligence that aims to locate, disrupt, and destroy the most dangerous organized crime groups posing dangers to the United States.

Jamore Clark and his co-defendants’ convictions and sentences represent a major turning point in the fight against the fentanyl trade and its terrible effects on the local population.
