A Delaware man has admitted he distributed heroin in the Garden State.
U.S. Attorney Philip Sellinger's office says 49-year-old Carl L. Jones of Newport, DE, pleaded guilty in Camden federal court to one count of distribution and possession with intent to distribute a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of heroin.
On March 29, 2019, Jones distributed, and possessed with intent to distribute, at least 700 grams, but less than one kilogram, of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of heroin to a confidential source who was working with law enforcement in a commercial parking lot in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey.
Jones now faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million.
Sentencing is scheduled for September 6th.
