Clovis man sentenced to 20 years for drug trafficking

Posted: Updated:
CLOVIS, New Mexico -

A Clovis man pleaded guilty to two counts of trafficking controlled substances and failure to appear.

Terrance Jones, 34, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for two first degree felonies.

The charges stemmed from two undercover drug operations by the Region V Drug Task Force, one in June 2016 and in December 2016. Search warrants revealed large amounts of cash and drugs found in Jones possession along with other paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking. 

In January 2017, Jones failed to appear in court and reportedly ran from law enforcement until his arrest in May.

Jones was found to be a habitual offender with a lengthy criminal history.
