Burlington County Man Admits Role in Camden Drug Trafficking Ring
A man from Burlington County has admitted his role in a drug-trafficking organization that distributed heroin and cocaine in Camden.
Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig says 29-year-old Dwight Williams Mount Holly pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of conspiracy to possess and possess with intent to distribute heroin and cocaine.
That count carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison, potentially up to 40 years, and a fine of $5 million.
According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:
An investigation led by the FBI used surveillance tactics, confidential informants, consensual recordings, over 40 controlled drug purchases, record checks, a GPS vehicle tracker, and several court-authorized wiretaps to uncover the operations a drug-trafficking organization based on the 500 block of Pine Street in Camden.
Williams and 15 other members of the drug-trafficking conspiracy – Ronnie Lopez, Nelson Salcedo, Carlos Perez, Paul Salcedo, Waldemar Garcia, William Carrillo, Elisa Rivera, Ramon Velez, David Velez, Naeem Sadler, Jasmin Velez, Jameel Byng, Kaliel Johnson, Meylin Troncoso, and Jose Agron – have now pleaded guilty in this case.
The charges against three other defendants remain pending, and they are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
Williams' sentencing is scheduled for May 17th.
