Bloomfield Man Sentenced for Federal Firearm and Drug Trafficking Offenses

On April 7, 2023, officers with the Bloomfield Police Department observed Jerome Phillips, 34, on a public street in Bloomfield. Knowing Phillips had an outstanding arrest warrant, they approached him. Phillips fled, and officers pursued. During the pursuit, Phillips reached for his waistband and dropped a firearm.

Phillips eventually surrendered and the police discovered approximately 7.87 grams of pure methamphetamine on him.

U.S. Attorney Alexander M.M. Uballez and Raul Bujanda, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Albuquerque Field Office, made the announcement today.

The Farmington Resident Agency of the FBI Albuquerque Field Office investigated this case with assistance from the Bloomfield Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph M. Spindle prosecuted this case as part of a referral process between the U.S. Attorney's Office and 11th Judicial District Attorney's Office to bring both state and federal charges against individuals or organizations involved in criminal activities which violate both state and federal laws, such as drug trafficking, organized crime, or large-scale fraud schemes.


Defendant was found guilty and sentenced to five years in prison. After completing his term of imprisonment, Phillips will be required to serve three years of supervised release
