PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Attorney General Peter Neronha announced that a Providence man has been charged with multiple firearms, narcotics distribution, and domestic assault offenses.

Jamon Brown, 27, was charged with possession with intent to deliver fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine, possession of a ghost gun, and domestic strangulation, among several other charges.

Brown was arrested on September 15, 2022 after Providence police responded to reports of domestic violence at an apartment on Swan Street.

The victim told police that the defendant strangled and shot at her before she fled the scene on foot, Neronha added.

When officers executed a search warrant of the suspect’s apartment they found a Polymer80 9mm ghost gun and a Smith & Wesson .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun, more than $3,000 in cash, quantities of narcotics, and drug paraphernalia.

Brown is scheduled for a pre-arraignment conference on July 31.
