Default Flint police officer, three others, indicted for drugs, gambling

The Associated Press
10/31/03 8:55 PM

DETROIT (AP) -- A Flint police officer and three other men have been indicted on drugs and gambling charges, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced Friday.

The five-count indictment claims Officer Tony Moran Jones, his brother, Hardy Nathan Jones and Gregory Mitchell Jones conspired to distribute 50 grams or more of crack cocaine, 5 kilograms or more of powder cocaine and 1000 kilograms of marijuana.

Gregory Jones, who is not related to the other two Jones', is accused of committing the offense after prior felony drug convictions in 1991.

The drug charges, alone, carry a penalty of between five years to life in prison.

Tony Jones and a fourth defendant, Benjamin Goodman, Jr. are accused of "deliberately conducting part of an illegal gambling business" in violation of Michigan laws.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said the men and several others ran the gambling operation for more than 30 days and had a gross revenue of $2,200 in at least a single day.

Tony Jones is accused of using his status as a Flint officer to insulate the gambling operation and "participating in it while in full uniform and without consequence from some other Flint police officers" who became aware of the operation.

The other charges include conspiracy to use wire communication facilities to wager, possession of a firearm with an altered serial number and possession of a stolen firearm.

Tony Jones is named in all five counts of the indictment. He and his brother were arrested Thursday morning.

An examination and bond hearing for all four is scheduled for Monday in Flint.
