NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A North Carolina man was sentenced on Monday to more than 11 years in prison for his role in a cocaine-trafficking conspiracy targeting Virginia communities.

According to court documents, Razagin Kaseen Lee, 47, of Elizabeth City, was the cocaine source for the family-run “Jones Drug-Trafficking Organization” based in Portsmouth.

Lee participated in this conspiracy for almost four years before he was caught.

In September 2019, law enforcement officers say they searched Lee’s Elizabeth City home and recovered more than 3.2 kilograms of cocaine, two 9mm handguns, more than $213,000 in cash, and two luxury vehicles.

Officials say Lee is the last member of the Jones Drug-Trafficking Organization to be sentenced.
