JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jerome Gordon Wellington of Palmdale, California and Byram, Mississippi has been sentenced to 181 months in federal prison for laundering drug proceeds through the purchase of a house in Byram.

Wellington was previously convicted of conspiring to distribute large amounts of cocaine from California into Mississippi.

"The role of IRS - CI in narcotics investigations is to follow the money, which enabled us to financially disrupt and dismantle Jerome Wellington's drug trafficking organization," said IRS Special Agent in Charge Gabriel L. Grchan. "We were proud to have provided this financial expertise as we worked alongside our law enforcement partners to bring Wellington and his cartel of criminals to justice."
