The boss of a Fort Worth drug trafficking operation and his associate have been hit with federal charges, DEA Special Agent in Charge Eduardo A. Chávez announced on Monday. 32-year-old Leeroy “Aladdin” Marquee Jones and 21-year-old Christopher Antwuan George were charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances.
Jones was identified as the leader of a drug trafficking organization that dealt fentanyl, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana in Fort Worth’s “Stop Six” neighborhood. He was allegedly a multi-kilogram distributor.

On January 19, law enforcement executed search warrants at three stash houses allegedly run by Jones and seized 500 grams of suspected fentanyl, 400 grams of suspected methamphetamine, 16 firearms, and a large amount of cash.
During their arrest, Demarcus Taylor, a federal fugitive previously charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances, was also arrested.
If convicted, they face up 10 years to life in federal prison.
“Seeking justice and a safe community is a team effort”, said DEA Fort Worth Special Agent in Charge, Eduardo A. Chávez. “Through our partnership with the Hood County Sheriff’s Office and the Fort Worth Police Department, guns and drugs, including thousands of potential deadly doses of fentanyl, are off our streets. Violent criminal drug networks poisoning our neighborhoods will be held accountable. You cannot hide.”
