The man who called himself “El Chapo Jr.” and bragged about being Dayton’s biggest drug dealer during an hours-long standoff with law enforcement has been federally indicted on guns and drug charges.
A Dayton U.S. District Court grand jury found probable cause that Daniel E. Jones, 28, possessed with intent to distribute 400 or more grams of fentanyl — a powerful narcotic that has led to many overdose deaths in Ohio.
The grand jury also indicted Jones on counts of conspiracy, possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime and possessing a firearm while already a convicted felon.
Jones was arrested in early April after a standoff at The Meadows of Catalpa apartment complex in Harrison Twp. Jones displayed himself next to a fire in a bathroom via a live Facebook feed during the standoff, according to court documents.
