Man involved in 2011 chase sentenced for drug trafficking

A Fairfield man was sentenced today in federal court in Sacramento to 19 years and seven months in prison for drug trafficking and firearms offenses.

After a court trial, Jaymar Dwaune Jamerson was found guilty in June 2012 of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute cocaine powder and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to a federal Department of Justice news release. He was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr.

According to evidence presented at trial, Jamerson led police officers on a high-speed chase through Solano County on Feb. 1, 2011, during which he dumped four baseball-size amounts of crack cocaine out of his car. During the chase, Jamerson used his cell phone to call his criminal associates to stage a burglary of his apartment to remove drug evidence, officials said. Following the car chase, officers walked the pursuit route and recovered fragments of crack cocaine thrown from Jamerson's car.

About two months later, law enforcement officers searched Jamerson's Fairfield apartment and a second apartment rented by his girlfriend and used by Jamerson as a drug stash pad. Officers found a loaded gun, a scale with methamphetamine residue, eight boxes of sandwich bags, and a plastic container with methamphetamine residue, all in a kitchen cabinet at Jamerson's apartment. They also found about 3 ounces of cocaine powder; $9,800 in cash; a scale with cocaine, crack cocaine and baking soda residue; and two plastic containers with cocaine and crack cocaine base residue at Jamerson's stash pad.

The case resulted from an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Fairfield Police Department and the Solano County Sheriff's Department.
